A contract is an understanding or a deal between two or more people or organizations that they will both do certain things. When two parties agree upon something and put it into writing, they are creating a legal obligation for both of them to perform specific acts. Contracts in law are considered very important and serious documents. In just a few hours, this course will give you a strong introduction to the fundamentals of contracts in law.

This course first introduces you to the definition of a contract and its three elements. It will teach you how to determine intent and how to communicate a contract. It then reviews a scenario about how a contract can be breached if one or more of the parties involved fail to fulfill their part of the agreement. You will learn how to resolve broken contracts in the form of damages.

You will then learn about your rights as an injured party as to how a broken contract or breached contract can be remedied. In the business realm, you will never know what the other party is thinking or planning,and there can always be unexpected situations where someone tries to take advantage of you. This course will give you a better understanding of when and in what kinds of situations a contract must be used for your own protection.

Many people enter an agreement without fully understanding the implications involved. Legal issues involving contracts often arise when one party fails to perform the legal obligation it has agreed to do. People should be aware of the validity and authenticity of a contract before agreeing to sign it. If you are a businessman or just a layperson who wish to enter into a legal agreement with another party, check out this course first in order to clearly understand the implications of having a written contract.
