An illegal contract is a contract that violates the law and which cannot be enforced.

For instance, if a man hires another person to impersonate his son in order to write an examination on behalf of the son and the hired man (i.e. mercenary) collects money but fails to carry out the assignment; there is nothing that the other man can do because this is a contract for the commission of an offence and it is illegal.
