If a state law requires that an optometrist be licensed before conducting an eye exam, and Avery, an optometrist who is not licensed, enters into an agreement with the Dean of Students to perform eye exams for all the students at State University, why might a court not enforce this contract?
Because the court might disagree with the terms of the contract.
Because the court might think it is not the State University’s responsibility to provide eye examinations for students.
Because the court might disagree with Western medical practices.
Because the court might find that the public interest in ensuring that optometrists have the proper education and training outweighs any interest in seeing that Avery gets whatever she bargained for.
Because the court might find the Dean of Students to be unqualified to negotiate with an optometrist.
