Contract law is the study of legally enforceable promises, normally exchanged as part of a bargain. Contracts are the main means by which transactions are made and legal obligations are voluntarily incurred. Doctrinal topics to be discussed may include: when a contractual promise exists and which are too indefinite; offer and acceptance; consideration; whether and when contracts should be voided for reasons such as duress or nondisclosure; contractual interpretation; parol evidence; statutes of frauds; “quasi-contracts”; and remedies.
