Agreement To Stop Fighting
Naming the Parties - You begin the contract by naming the parties in the agreement. This may seem obvious, but attorney Mark Cohen of Colorado writes in his article Ten Things to Consider Before Signing a Contract that "a common error is to use the name of a person representing an entity rather than the name of the entity."
Conventions and Treaties signed by signatories of states bind private actors to the terms of that agreement through the domestic application of the treaty provisions. These agreements may be bilateral (between two countries/states) or multilateral (between three or more countries/states).
