Project 2 – Drafting of a Simple
For this Group Project
#2, you will draft a simple contract.
The subject of the contract is for a business engaging the services of a
grounds maintenance company (i.e., lawn cutting, snow removal, etc.). The focus of this Project is the contract and
not the subject of the contract, but rather, have you incorporated the required
elements into a basic contract. For
purposes of completing this Project 2, at minimum, you will need to include the
following in your contract:
elements required to form a valid and enforceable contract;
remedies in the even of a breach by either party; and
contract should be 1-2 pages in length. DO NOT EXCEED THIS LENGTH.
While all contracts must
include certain required elements, there is no one form of appearance for a
contract. To that end, I have provided
you with a sample of a contract dealing with a different subject matter so you
may get a sense of the basic layout of a contract. You may also consult with other contracts
which you may observe in the course of your own lives (i.e., leases, purchase
agreements, student loan agreements, etc.).
CAVEAT TO BORROWING PROVISIONS
FROM OTHER CONTRACTS: You must ensure that the entirety of the provisions
you are borrowing apply to your particular circumstance. You may need to modify language as will
likely be necessary. Failure to do so
will evidence a lack of critical thinking and will affect your grade.
In grading your contracts, I will be looking for the
- Have you
included the necessary elements of a contract?
- Have you
included the additional elements required by this assignment?
- Are the required
elements of your contract clearly identifiable?
- Are your agreements
expressed in complete sentences?
- Do your
sentences and paragraphs transition well, and represent a logical flow to
the subject matter?
- Do you utilize
proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar?
While this Project does not strictly fall into
APA guidelines, be sure to include title and reference pages in keeping with
the guidelines. Identify the topic, your
name, course name, instructor name and due date on your title page.
