What is Law New?
Law new is a concept that lawyers across the country are embracing in ways that can be beneficial to their clients. It can mean working with underserved communities or creating strategies that have not been part of legal practice in the past. It’s not always easy to pin down but it does have some basic aspects that can help any law firm create value in a way they never thought possible.
A committee report is a document that describes the purpose and scope of the proposed legislation or laws being considered. Bills that deal with public matters generally have a formal designation such as H.R. (House of Representatives) or S. (Senate). When they are passed and approved by Congress they become Public Laws or Acts. A committee report generally includes a section by section analysis that clearly explains why the bill is being recommended for approval.
A well planned strategy that makes use of the concepts of law new can offer help to certain types of clients without impacting other areas of legal practice that might be the primary focus of a law firm. That’s something that all legal firms should take seriously.
