Finding the definition of a legal term using’s Legal Research tool is easy. Just put “def:” (without the quotes) in front of the word. In this instance, your search would be def:consideration. This instantly gives you search results from multiple dictionaries.

The first result is:
b : the inducement to a contract or other legal transaction specifically : an act or forbearance or the promise thereof done or given by one party in return for the …

Consideration is what someone gives up, in exchange for something else, in a contract. So if you’re buying or selling a car, in consideration of $10,000 …

You can conceal the actual price, too. For example, you could say “in consideration of $1 plus other good and valuable consideration.” This might apply when making a gift, when part of the consideration is love and affection.

Hope this helps!
