REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTIONS are rules defining the nature and the amount of the Presumptions in the law book which is sufficient to establish a prima facie case and to throw the burden of proof upon the other party; and, if no opposing evidence is offered, the Court is bound to come to a conclusion in favour of the presumption.

An interpretative presumption, laid down at common law, affords guidance, arising out of the essential nature of legislation, as to the legislator's prima facie intention regarding the legal meaning. It is presumed that the text, in its setting within the Act, is the pre-eminent indication.

The Court shall presume the genuineness of every book purporting to be printed and published under the authority of the Government of any country, and to contain any of the laws of that country; and of every book purporting to contain reports of decisions of the Courts of such country.

Presumption as to powers of attorney. The law of presumptions has never been popular among commentators.

Common law presumptions There have existed at least two types of presumption of guilt under the law of England, which arose from a rule of law or a procedural rule of the court or other adjudicating body and determined how the facts in the case were to be proven, and could be either rebuttable or irrebuttable.

Legal presumptions are of two kinds: first, such as are made by the law itself, or presumptions of mere law; secondly, such as are to be made by a jury, or presumptions of law and fact.

Presumptions of mere law, are either absolute and conclusive; as, for instance, the presumption of law that a bond or other specialty was executed upon. Presumptions in the law: a suggestion.

Presumption is an inference, which takes place in the absence of absolute certainty as to truth or falsehood of a fact. In other words, presumption is an inference drawn by the court as to the truth of a particular fact, from other known or proved fact.

A presumption is a legal notion that allows a judge or jury to assume a certain fact is true if another fact, or set of facts, can be proven by a party to the case.
