Legal Issues: Contract & Agency Law

The fundamental elements that must be present to show the formation and existence of a legally binding contract include: 1) an offer, 2) acceptance, 3) consideration, 4) mutuality of obligation, 5) capacity and competency, 6) lawful purpose (Koffman and MacDonald,2007). However, when a party files a lawsuit (dispute) claiming that there was a breach of the contract, for the judge to make a fair decision, he/she must answer the question of whether there was a contract between the parties.

The chapters concern the early years of the protagonist Dwayne (presumed to be Moore himself). He speaks about his father, his childhood, his trip to France and how the people he met influenced his life. In the text, Moore’s style shifts smoothly from describing past events that have already occurred to describing events in the present tense, an example of this would be Moore’s own thoughts at the time these events occurred; “Why not write comedy?
