This research paper provides uniform procedures for the legality of a contractual agreement between parties and highlights some of the complexities in statutory laws. Over the years, businesses as well as individuals has entered into contracts with minimal or no experience. This downfall has created illegal activities in the formation and administrative process of contracts. In order to avoid future non-enforceable contracts, parties must understand the requirements of a legal contract. The acquisition of each partyas responsibility in a contractual agreement is a force multiplier and minimizes legal proceedings. Moreover, the case studies addressed are included to strengthen the awareness and understanding of a legally enforceable contract. After reading the legality of a contract in this paper, parties will become more susceptible to enter into a legal agreement that forms a contract.
