Contract (plural contracts)


From Middle English, from Latin contractum, past participle of contrahere ("'to bring together, to bring about, to conclude a bargain'"), from con- ("'with, together'") + trahere ("'to draw, to pull'").

  1. An agreement between two or more parties, to perform a specific job or work order, often temporary or of fixed duration and usually governed by a written agreement.
  2. (law) An agreement which the law will enforce in some way. A legally binding contract must contain at least one promise, i.e., a commitment or offer, by an offeror to and accepted by an offeree to do something in the future. A contract is thus executory rather than executed.
  3. (law) A part of legal studies dealing with laws and jurisdiction related to contracts.
