Agreement And Consideration In Contract

Contracts are mainly subject to legal and common (judicial) and private law (i.e.dem private contract). Private law first includes the terms of the agreement between the parties exchanging promises. This private right can repeal many of the rules otherwise established by state law. Legal broadcasting laws, such as the Fraud Act, may require certain types of contracts to be executed in writing and with special formalities in order for the contract to be enforceable. Otherwise, the parties can enter into a binding agreement without signing an official written document. For example, the Virginia Supreme Court in Lucy v. Zehmer, that even an agreement on a piece of towel can be considered a valid contract if the parties were both sane, and showed mutual consent and consideration. Part of a contract promises $10 for a witness to give false evidence in court. Whatever type of contract you enter into, you will probably hear the term “reflection.” Indeed, in addition to offer and acceptance, “reflection” is one of the essential elements of a contract.

But what does that really mean? A promise cannot be based on a reflection that was said, made or given before the promise. Something that will be said later will not be considered a quid pro quo. For example, if X promises to reward Y for an act that Y has already accomplished, then the execution of that act is a good reflection, because the promise to be rewarded for it is a past reflection and therefore not a good reflection. Contract law says, “Reflection must move away from promise.” Suppose A is a screenwriter and B runs a film production company. Said to B, “Buy my script.” B says, “What if you did – I`m going to pay you $5,000 so you don`t let anyone produce your film for another year. If I produce your film this year, I will give you $50,000 more, and no one else will be able to produce it. If I don`t produce your film this year, you can go. If these two are then arguing, the question of whether there is a contract will be answered.
