This Chapter considers assignment, that is to say, the transfer of B’s contractual rights against A to C by means of an agreement between B (the assignor) and C (the assignee) irrespective of A’s (the debtor’s) consent. It examines the rules governing assignment and distinguishes it from several similar concepts: the negotiability of ‘negotiable instruments’, vicarious performance, novation, and the transfer of rights and liabilities by operation of law.
