Endorsement– these are terms written on the back of a document. An alternate spelling, in some English jurisdictions, is “indorsement.”

– In the Commercial Law, an endorsement is a signature on the back of the bill of exchange by which the person to whom the note is payable transfers it by thus making the note payable to the bearer or to a specific person.

– An endorsement of claim means that if you want to ask a court to issue a writ against someone, you have to “endorse” your writ with a concise summary of the facts supporting the claim, sometimes called a statement of claim.

– In the Contracts & Obligations Law, endorsement is a change to the original terms & conditions of a contract.
