Chapter 9: Legality
Chapter Overview: Ready to Learn?
A contract can be made illegal in several ways. A contract may involve something that violates statutory law, either civilly or criminally. Sometimes making the agreement itself can be illegal. When someone agrees to commit crimes for a promised consideration, he or she is involved in conspiracy, which is illegal. Other agreements are illegal because they violate public policy. In this chapter, you will be able to avoid problems that you might encounter when entering into a contract.
