And here is another example. My family is also a new Peleton bike owner. Why? See https://www.boginmunns.com/turning-60-legal-perspective/ for some of the reasons why. But the sort reason – I plan to stay a practicing lawyer for quite a while longer, and I prefer to do so healthy. (For a similar reason, I keep – and use – a mini-elliptical cycle under my desk.)
When placing the order for the Peleton there was quite a bit of documentation involved. Order contracts, liability waivers and releases, disclosures, and warranty documents, among others. Those contracts are signed by ‘regular’ consumers, but it was certainly helpful to have a lawyer present to review them on-the-spot. Because lawyers can be customers as well as professional technocrats.
So there are indeed intersections between the ‘real world’ and the law. 24/7. Every. Single. Day.
Now, we are just coming out of National Entrepreneurship Week. What did you do? The U.S. Small Business Administration offers a variety of upcoming programs and initiatives to support new and small businesses:
