The Essentials of Contract
Code Civil
Des Contrats ou des Obligations Conventionnelles en Général
CHAPITRE PREMIER
Dispositions Préliminaires
1101. Le contrat est une convention par laquelle une ou plusieurs personnes s'obligent, envers une ou plusieurs autres, à donner, à faire ou à ne pas faire quelque chose.
1102. Le contrat est synallagmatique ou bilatéral lorsque les contractants s'obligent réciproquement les uns envers les autres.
1103. Il est unilatéral lorsqu'une ou plusieurs personnes sont obligées enverse une ou plusieurs autres, sans que de la part de ces dernières, il y ait d'engagement.
1104. Il est commutatif lorsque chacune des parties s'engage à donner ou à faire une chose qui est regardée comme l'équivalent de ce qu'on lui donne, ou de ce qu'on fait pour elle.

Lorsque l'équivalent consiste dans la chance de gain ou de perte pour chacune des parties, d'après un événement incertain, le contrat est aléatoire.

1105. Le contrat de bienfaisance est celui dans lequel l'une des parties procure à l'autre un avantage purement gratuit.
1106. Le contrat à titre onéreux est celui qui assujettit chacune des parties à donner ou à faire quelque chose.
1107. Les contrats, soit qu'ils aient une dénomination propre, soit qu'ils n'en aient pas, sont soumis à des règles générales, qui sont l'objet du présent titre.

Les règles particulières à certains contrats sont établies sous les titres relatifs à chacun d'eux; et les règles particulières aux transactions commerciales sont établies par les lois relatives au commerce.
