Abstract

Although many derivations have occurred over the years with contract writing it has always been agreed that a Contract is a binding legal document between at least two parties. In ancient times we see similar structure to the yet modern version of US law and that of the English Law. We will explore briefly the earlier contracts and their contents but concentrate on a modern day acceptable contract with the specific terms required in order to conduct business relationships.
