S IX ELEMENTS OF A CONTRACT An agreement is not a contract unless it contains the six elements of a contract: Consideration Capacity Legality Offer Acceptance Genuine Agreement
CONSIDERATION THE THING OF VALUE PROMISED TO ONE PARTY IN A CONTRACT IN EXCHANGE FOR SOMETHING ELSE OF VALUE PROMISED BY THE OTHER PARTY.
CAPACITY THE LAW PERSUMES THAT ANYONE ENTERING A CONTRACT HAS THE LEGAL CAPACITY TO DO SO. Example-Getting Married MINORS ARE GENERALLY EXCUSED FROM CONTRACTUALY RESPONSIBILITY AS WELL AS MENTALLY IMPAIRED PEOPLE AND INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE INFLUENCE.
LEGALITY PARTIES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENFORCE CONTRACTS THAT INVOLVE ILLEGAL ACTS. SOME ILLEGAL CONTRACTS INVOLVE AGREEMENTS TO COMMIT A CRIME OR A TORT (A private wrong committed by one person against another)..
OFFER A proposal by one party to another intended to create a legally binding agreement EXAMPLE- A CAR DEALER OFFERS YOU A PRICE ON A CAR.

BILATERAL CONTRACT A bilateral contract is an agreement in which each of the parties to the contract makes a promise or set of promises to the other party or parties.bilateral contract promise For example, in a contract for the sale of a home, the buyer promises to pay the seller $200,000 in exchange for the seller's promise to deliver title to the property.
UNILATERAL CONTRACT In a unilateral contract, only one party to the contract makes a promise. A typical example is the reward contract: A promises to pay a reward to B if B finds A's dog. B is not under an obligation to find A's dog, but A is under an obligation to pay the reward to B if B does find the dog.
CHARACTERISTICS OF A CONTRACT EXPRESS- oral or written IMPLIED- no single word is exchanged (comes from the actions of the parties involved). Example-paying cash in advance to pump gas.
