Innominate Contract Law and Legal Definition

An innominate contract is also termed as innominate real contract. In Roman & Civil law, innominate contract refers to a contract which is not classifiable under any particular name. In an innominate contract, the law supplies nothing in addition to the express agreement of the parties. This type of contract was developed late in classical Roman law. The agreements did not become operational without at least part performance, even if the agreements were reciprocal.
