Common Law Assignment 1
A contract may be defined as an agreement which legally binds the parties. A party to a contract is bound because he has agreed to be bound.

Contracts are sometimes referred to as enforceable agreements. This too is somewhat misleading.

He will usually be restricted to the remedy of damages.
