Question Description

The default rule of contracts is that many types of agreements, even if oral and not written, are recognized as enforceable contracts (subject to proof or questions of fact). Under the Statute of Frauds, however, certain types of agreements must be in writing to be recognized as enforceable contracts. For this discussion, please post a new thread addressing the following questions:

1. Why is this rule called the Statute of Frauds? Please explain.

2. List three types of agreements that must be in writing to constitute an enforceable contract. Do you agree that these types of agreements should require a writing to constitute an enforceable contract? Why or why not?

3. Identify another type of agreement that you might add to the list, and please explain why.

After posting your notes on these 3 items, please reply (by Thursday) to the entries of two (any two) other students, adding support for why the other type of contracts should be in writing.

Please be sure to stay on topic and limit your discussion to only the questions posed. Please respect your classmates in the discussion boards, and use only appropriate language, as you would in a professional, business environment. I look forward to reading your posts!
