In general terms, the law of Contract is a set of rules designed to give legal effect to private bargains. Parties are free to contract on any matter they choose and on any terms they prefer, subject only to any limitations imposed by statute or by common law rules of public policy. The law recognises the paramountcy of this freedom of choice as to promises made in that, once parties have exercised their choice of reaching an agreement, the law may be used to enforce the agreement so reached, subject to the limitations mentioned.
