In a world that is constantly changing, law firms have to keep up with the times. That means finding new ways to serve clients and coming up with strategies that have not been a part of law practice in the past.
One way that legal firms are addressing these issues is by focusing on “law new.” This term can be hard to pin down but, in general, it refers to a way of offering legal help that does not have to interfere with a firm’s primary focus. Instead, this type of practice can provide a secondary stream of revenue and client satisfaction.
Most ideas for new laws are introduced in the House or Senate in the form of bills. These legislative proposals are identified by the number they are given during each Congress and often have a prefix such as H.R. or S. Those that are approved by Congress become Public Laws, or Acts, and are enforced by the courts. After a bill passes through committee, the staff writes a committee report that provides a detailed explanation of what the new law will do and why it is recommended for approval by the entire committee.
