Critically evaluate the doctrine of frustration as a method of contractual discharge and consider whether it has a role to play in the modern law of contract.
A contract may be discharged in the following ways; frustration, performance and breach. The doctrine of frustration covers situations where a contract is impossible to perform (for example; personal incapacity or supervening illegality). When a contract is frustrated it is automatically discharged at that moment. Although in these events a contract is not always frustrated, the event must not be the fault of either party or foreseeable.
The Paradine v Jane (1647) rule, was before the doctrine of frustration, where there used to be

contract is the agreement entered into by two or more persons with the intention of creating a legal obligation or obligations. The validity of the contract of this nature can be ascertained by looking around the terms of the contract and the extent to which they are binding on the individual parties, the actual interpretation of the nature of the contract, whether it was a contract of sale or of exchange and the relative interpretations of similar cases in relent cases, law journals and statutes.
From a general point of perspective, the contract can be regarded as valid since the agreement was verbally made and confirmed by the writing down of the general terms sealed by signatures of the

A contract is “a promise, or set of promises, for breach of which the law
gives a remedy, or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes as
a duty.”2 It is a mutually binding agreement. In order to form a contract there
must be mutual assent such as a valid offer and acceptance between parties.
The parties must have the legal capacity to enter a contract, and adequate
consideration must exist. Furthermore, the subject matter of the contract must

The existence of contract law is to prevent any sort of illegal behaviour, injustice and to clarify any confusion or misunderstanding amongst the offerror and the offeree. Everybody in this world is an offeree as we all purchase goods and services to meet our personal needs and if our expectations are not met, there is a problem which is why the contract is created for both parties to follow. However, if either of them fails to do so, then they are in breach of contract and the aggrieved party has legal rights that they can try and enforce. A contract is formed when there is an offer or acceptance. In this assignment I have been given a case to resolve and advise the parties whether they

An offer stated to open for a specific period, lapse if the there is no acceptance within that time.

Under UCC laws, generally under common law contracts, the statue of fraud applies when a contract cannot be fulfilled within one year’s time. Under these stipulations, the statute would apply. However, there is one element required to meet this stipulation, and that is the signature of the party in the contract.

On the one end stands an "employee" who is "employed" by an "employer". A written employment contract is a document that someone and their employee sign which sets forth the terms and conditions of the employment relationship (Tepper, 2011).

A contract is an agreement that is enforceable by law. Modern business could not exist without such contracts. Most business transactions involve commitments to furnish goods, services, or real property; these commitments are usually in the form of contracts. Use of the contract in business affairs ensures, to some extent, the performance of an agreement, for a party that breaks a contract may be sued in court for the damages caused by the breach. Sometimes, however, a party that breaks a contract may be persuaded to make an out-of-court settlement, therefore saving the expense of legal proceedings.

Both parties need to be in agreement with the terms of the contract in order for the contract to be made. If someone agrees and then adds to what was stated, it is not a valid contract (Melvin, 2011). The contract laws are governed by the common law and the Uniform Commercial Code known as the UCC.
