Lawyers Anyone?

For all you lawyers and law students out there, have any of you noticed that Seinfeld episodes are replete with law-related issues from Contract Law to Property Law to Tort Law...and even some Criminal Law. So I, as a law student, will start it out with an episode dealing with Contracts issues and the next person can take it up and put forht another one.
The Bicycle Episode where Elaine buys the old bicycle and Kramer "fixes" her neck -- that has about 10+ different Contract issues all tangled up in that episode. Somebody name them and then put up another episode with law-related issues.

Kramer's numerous law suits involving Jackie Chiles...the finale with the so called "good samaritan" law is an interesting seems to me to be a pretty ridiculous idea...a little bit contrived i think as a means of reintroducing all the old characters

Yeah I agree, but what I meant with my first post was that in the bicycle episode there is so much law going on --
Elaine makes what seems to be a unilateral offer (is it though from a legal sense)
Kramer satisfies it by part performance
They both agree to an arbitrator, etc.

The more I watch Seinfeld now that I am done with my first year of law school, the more I notice all these legal references -- do you think it is possible that someone on the writing staff is a lawyer or do you think it is all coincidental?
