New Laws in New York

Law new is a concept that can be hard to define. In general, it refers to new ways of practicing legal services that can benefit clients and generate revenue. This includes new strategies that have not been used in the past and may involve using technology or working outside of a traditional office. In addition, it can include a shift away from billable hours to a more fixed fee model.

As with any profession, the practice of law is always changing. New challenges arise at a moment’s notice and strategies that worked one quarter may not be as effective the next. In an effort to remain competitive, many legal firms are turning to law new to help them grow and stay ahead of the curve.

The laws of New York consist of the Constitution, laws passed by the state legislature and periodically codified in the New York Consolidated Laws, and decisions made by courts that interpret New York laws. In addition, the Open Meetings Law applies to “public bodies.” That term is broadly defined and includes city councils, town boards, village boards of trustees, school districts, commissions, legislative bodies or committees, and any other groups that conduct public business and perform a governmental function for the state or for a municipality.

New York residents will see some major changes to their day-to-day lives this year. For example, the minimum wage is increasing in New York City and Westchester County to $16 per hour and $15 in the rest of the state. Also, under the “Matthew’s Law” program, more resources will be available for victims and survivors to help with drug overdoses. This is in memory of Matthew Horan, who died of an accidental fentanyl overdose in 2020. This legislation will allow local pharmacies and health care providers to provide free fentanyl and other drug adulterant testing supplies. This will decrease the chances of an accidental overdose. Other new laws include licensing third-party food delivery services and repealing subchapter 22 of chapter 5 of title 20 of the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to the provision of certain information to employees and job applicants of municipal agencies.
