What is a contract?

A contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties that can be enforced by the law. Contracts may be oral or written; however, more legal authority is placed on contracts in writing. A promise made in exchange for consideration is a legally binding contract. By no means should a contract be made under duress. Failure to fulfill his/her term in the contract is committing a breach in that contract.
