In Contracts , Farnsworth (1999) indicates that a contract can be defined as a promise or a set of promises for the breach of which the law gives a remedy or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes as a duty. There are, however, two limitations. First, the law of contracts is confined to promises that the law will enforce. Secondly, it is confined to promises (a commitment to future behavior).
Contracts govern a wide range of human activity such as purchase and sale of real estate, employment, insurance, furnishing of services such as medical, legal, engineering, architectural, painting, construction, education, loans, software licensing, publishing, movie-making, drycleaning, etc.
