While it's not coming up with a new law, Murphy's Law is one of the best ways for a layman to handle legal questions - just assume that every loophole and and interpretation will go the opposite of the way you want, and you'll be OK. So the practical answer to a question like "are oral contracts binding in court?" is "Yes if it's bad for you, no if it helps you."
