Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Sorry for the late reply.
But can you tell me more about "The principles of contract law are judicially created and maintained. Contract law doctrine is not part of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS)" I don't understand what that means.
Is there a reference where I can learn more about the principles of contract law that a judge would use to base his decisions and hold the disputable parties accountable to?
I realize I can get a textbook on contract law. But I thought there would be something of a "statutes of contract law" on the matter so to speak as there are with other laws.
You have already earned a decent tip a good response just adds to it ;-)
The two citations to case law opinions that I previously provided, directly resolve the law concerning your question. However, the opinions certainly do not provide an overview of contract law principles. And, while I am of the general opinion that substantially everything written about the law, which is available at no cost, on the internet (other than that which is provided by a government website, or which directly quotes a judicial case law opinion entirely and verbatim), is woefully inadequate (and frequently outright rubbish) -- this outline of contract law from Lexisnexis® (one of the largest and most reputable proprietary subscription legal databases in existence) is pretty good (ed. op.).Hope this helps.
