I think that your question nearly answers itself. You have limited your question to contracts that are “enforceable at law” so that clearly, they are defined by those who make the law.
Legislatures, obviously, write the black letter law, but courts then are required to apply those statutes to situations that may have not been anticipated by the lawmakers at the time they wrote the statute. (The certainly have not all been re-written after the advent of the internet, for instance.)

Is a contract enforceable if it violates the law?
Generally speaking, provisions of any contract that violate statutory or case law are unenforceable. Without a severability clause in the contract, it would be up to the court to decide whether such a provision would invalidate the entire contract or whether it could otherwise be enforced. Such decisions generally depend on the importance of the particular provision.
If the overall intent of the contract is one that is illegal, then it will likely be deemed void by the court in its entirety.

Does pinky swear constitute an enforceable legal contract?
Maybe. It depends on whether the other aspects required of a contract are present. In a contract you must have offer, consideration, and acceptance.
Consideration means the something of value.
I imagine the act of pinky swearing could serve as acceptance.

What are the main elements of enforceable contracts and how would you explain them?
Originally Answered: What are the main elements of enforceable contracts and explain them? Tips: subject, basis, form, capacity, will, contracting parties.
Week one of contract law class. A contract has four elements:
An offer: one party promises to perform in the future (by doing something or refraining from doing something)
Consideration: the offer is proposed to be in exchange for something of value rather than gratuitous (a gift). Consideration may consist of money or a valuable asset, promised future performance, or reliance on the first party's promise.
Acceptance: the second party accepts the offer through communication, or by conveying some or all of the consideration (money, performance) called for in the offer, in a way that unambiguously

Are implied contracts enforceable?
In the US the answer is yes, of course, an implied contract is enforceable. I am assuming, of course, that you mean “implied in fact” contracts. Contracts are often, especially in business, formed informally. If the circumstances indicate that a contract was formed the courts will recognize the contract if the elements are met. As I indicated in an answer to a similar question, I worked at a print shop in my younger days. We bought a lot of film. One day we got a new sales rep from the film supplier. When he started, he would talk with the department that bought the film, fill out an order for

What makes a contract enforceable?
First, there must be an offer (I will sell you 5 shares of Dow Chemical for $90).
Then there must be an acceptance (I accept your offer and agree to pay $90).
Then there must be “consideration” broadly defined as an exchange of value (or, in the case of executory contracts, and exchange of promises). In this case, the $90 becomes the consideration once the buyer tenders it, and the promise to pay the $90 becomes the consideration if the buyer refuses to tender it.
If the seller shows up but refuses to sell after the $90 is tendered, the court will grant a remedy for breach of contract. Likewise,

Are all contracts enforceable?
No. There are a handful of reasons as to why many contracts may not be enforceable. Legality of the subject matter of the agreement, extreme unbalance of the terms of the agreement, state of mind of the parties, errors, and of course when a party is not legally permitted to enter into contracts or acquire legal obligations such as a minor.
