According to the parol rule evidence, all the contracts entered to must be written down. peter entered in to a contract with caroline but orally. on 07th/05/2013, peter started claiming for wha
they aggreed upon but caroline rejected that there was no a contract between them. when the matter was taken to the local council chairperson, the chairperson himself does not know what to do. as a student of business law, can you advise peter with DECIDED CASES?

Sorry if I misunderstand your question, but the parol evidence rule does not state that all contracts must be written down. The parol evidence rule simply prevents either party to a complete, final written agreement from bringing extrinsic evidence (like oral statements outside of the contract, or other documents about the contract, that are not in included in the final contract itself) to change the terms of the contract. Here are a few helpful articles that should explain contracts and the parol evidence rule.

Moreover, contract law is state specific. Thus, if Peter would like to learn more about enforcing an oral agreement, he should speak to a lawyer in his jurisdiction.
