Contract law is the branch of law which addresses the rights and obligations which legally bind parties together. Contract law is legally enforced as a type of contract which is a certain agreement in which two or more parties agree on
specific terms. Contract law is based off of the Latin phrase “pacta sunt servanda”, which means agreements to be kept.
Contract law is regulated and enforced by the court system. Contract laws consist of the protection and regulation of: trusts, wills, loans, and work contracts.
If a person breaks a contract it is known as a breach of contract and the person can be penalized for breaking a contract law. Generally, for a contract to be accepted in contract law, it must consist of certain requirements. Some requirements include:
