It is very crucial to include all the elements while enteringinto a contract. Essential elements are described as follows:1.Offer and Acceptance: While entering into a contract, there must be a lawful offer and alawful acceptance by offeree in response to the offer given by offerer. The use ofadjective lawful describes that offer and acceptance should be aligned with the rules laiddown in the contract law (Entorres v Miles Far East [1955] 2 QB 327). 2.Consideration: Contract has been made on the basis of getting anything in return. Thus,consideration can be referred as the price or anything in kind which one party is going tomake to other party. It is said that both parties should get benefit out of it and both shouldsuffer the detriment (Chappell v Nestle [1960] AC 87).3.Intention: The contract can be only made with full intention of both the parties. Any ofthe party cannot be involved in it forcefully by threatening other party (Balfour v Balfour[1919] 2 KB 571). 4
