Law new is not an easy concept to pin down. It is a catchall industry term used to describe anything that disrupts traditional legal services or creates new ways of providing them. It has been linked to such terms as “legal tech,” “legal ops,” and “ALSP’s.” But it is not really a new concept, just a different approach to delivering legal services.
It is a way of practicing law that seeks to benefit clients in innovative ways and incorporates technology and process as an integral part of the work. It also typically involves a focus on a specific area of the law and a fee structure that differs from the standard law firm model. It can also involve a collaboration of legal practitioners and non-legal staffers on the business of law side.
The idea behind it is that a well-thought out plan using these techniques can provide the help a client needs without interfering with other areas of the practice and thus potentially detracting from overall profitability. The key is to make it an integral part of a larger strategy that integrates the legal function with business and society to produce scalable, on-demand, legal products and services for real-time risk and opportunity management.
This is how the new law model produces change that is impactful to legal consumers and society-at-large. In other words, it delivers the kind of law that businesses need today and the kinds of legal products and services that the business world wants.
Congress is the lawmaking branch of our federal government. It is composed of the House of Representatives and the Senate. A bill to become a law starts by being introduced in one of these chambers and assigned to a committee. The members of the committee will research, discuss, and make changes to the bill before it is voted on by the full chamber. If the bill is passed, it will be sent to the other chamber for the same process.
New York City’s public agencies are required to notify their employees and job applicants of available student loan forgiveness programs. This bill will require the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, in consultation with the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP), to prepare a notice for City agency employees and job applicants regarding the availability of these programs.
This bill would amend Chapter 73 of Title 20 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York to authorize third-party food delivery service providers to obtain a license from the Department, subject to certain requirements. The bill would also repeal the existing subchapter in Chapter 5 of Title 20 of the Administrative Code that contains laws regulating third-party food delivery services. The department may deny or refuse to renew a license, or suspend or revoke a license, if the operator fails to comply with these provisions. The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection would enforce this legislation.
