Submission Law and Legal Definition

Submission means a surrender or yielding, as to an arrest; or a command. It refers to a matter to another for consideration and decision. For instance, the act of the court in instructing the jury and sending them out to return a verdict is a submission.

A submission shall be in writing, duly acknowledged or proved, and certified, in like manner as a deed to be recorded. The submission may provide that a judgment of a specified court of record shall be rendered upon the award made pursuant to the submission.
