WHAT CONDITIONS MUST BE met before the law will enforce a promise? If one asks lawyers and students from across the common law world, they will answer: an offer, an acceptance of the offer, and a mutual exchange of value. Of course, they will add, it is not as simple as that; such a formulation on its own can produce highly unfair results, and experience and the passage of time have birthed a myriad of exceptions to the rule. It is those exceptions that are the focus of Sanctity of Contracts in a Secular Age: Equity, Fairness and Enrichment.
