A contract is an arrangement between parties that can be turned to a court to enforce. Contract law is the body of law pertaining to the creation of legally-binding agreements (contracts), enforcing them, and creating reasonable remedies to them when and if there is an infringement.
All individuals and businesses utilize contract law to some degree. When licensing and selling goods and services, for example, businesses and buyers rely on transaction contracts to ensure that the transaction is made on clear terms. When businesses hire new employees, they rely on employment contracts to ensure that the employee understands and accepts the terms of the contract. Ultimately, contract law is what enables exchanges of all kinds to occur between parties, ensuring that they are made in good faith and that misunderstandings and breaches can be addressed in a court of law.
