The law of contract confines itself to the enforcement of voluntarily created civil obligations. It does not cover the whole range of civil obligations. There are many obligations of civil nature, like those imposed by law or created by the acceptance of a trust, whose violation may be actionable under the law of torts or of trusts, or under a statute, but they are outside the field of contract. The law of contract is also not able to take care of the whole range of agreements. Many agreements remain outside its purview because they do not fulfil the requirements of a contract.
