The legal world is always changing and expanding. There are new challenges, changes in legislation and the need to come up with fresh strategies that will work for clients. One idea that has been growing in popularity is law new, a concept that focuses on delivering legal services in innovative ways. It can help clients in ways that traditional practice has not been able to offer them and may also provide lawyers with a way to generate more business.
As the year begins, major legislative bills are taking effect that will impact New York residents. The minimum wage in New York City, Westchester and Long Island will increase to $16 an hour. Other legislation includes “Matthew’s Law,” a bill to increase access to drug testing resources for the public. This legislation is named after Matthew Horan, a student who died from an accidental fentanyl overdose. Another piece of legislation will protect college students from bias-related and hate crimes.
In addition to local laws, there are several state-level bills that are making their way through the legislative process. One bill, in particular, would require that city agencies notify employees and job applicants of federal and state student loan forgiveness programs. The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection would prepare a notice to this effect for agencies to distribute.
There are also a number of bills being introduced that will deal with issues relating to the environment and the health of New Yorkers. One bill will make it easier for people who live in rural areas to obtain a hunting and fishing license. Another will create a task force to study the impact of climate change on health and agriculture in New York.
Law new is a concept that all legal firms should be paying close attention to. This is a field that could expand enormously over the next few years and it is important for all legal practitioners to understand how this concept works in order to harness its potential benefits.
For example, by utilizing the concepts that are inherent in this concept, it will be possible for all legal firms to offer the type of legal help that many clients need without compromising their primary focus on traditional legal practices. It will also be possible to find a new source of revenue and a new way of working that will benefit all parties involved.
