You're not considered a legal adult in the eyes of the law until age 18, generally speaking. As such, you cannot enter into a binding contract as a juvenile. It has been done, however, by unwise merchants. They find the hard way -- usually in small claims court -- that any contract a juvenile signs isn't considered legally binding.
