English Legal System: Acquiescence
In the context of the English law, A Dictionary of Law provides the following legal concept of Acquiescence :
Express or implied *consent. In law, care must be taken to distinguish between mere knowledge of a situation and positive consent to it. For example, in the defence of *volenti non fit injuria an injured party will not be regarded as having consented to a risk simply because he knew that the risk existed.
