New Areas of Law Practice

The world of law is a rapidly changing one. Lawyers must constantly adjust their strategies to meet the needs of their clients and the ever-changing laws. For some firms, this means focusing on new areas of the law. Known as “law new,” this area of practice aims to create innovative methods to deliver legal services. This can include working with underserved communities, finding different ways to engage with clients and developing a unique approach to legal strategy.

While it is a difficult concept to define, law new typically involves offering legal assistance in nontraditional ways. This could include offering legal advice to small businesses, developing a new approach to e-discovery or creating strategies for working with nonprofit entities. In addition, this area of practice may involve staffing with non-partner track attorneys and using a variety of fee structures.

In 2023, a number of new laws went into effect as Americans welcomed the year ahead. The laws range from quirky to serious and focus on a wide range of subjects. Several of the laws highlight issues currently dominating American conversation, while others will impact local residents in distinct ways.

For example, the new law of the city of New York will require public agencies to provide employees and job applicants with notice regarding student loan forgiveness programs. This bill also requires that the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection develops a list of eligible organizations to which City government departments can make donations.

A new law in Missouri will make it a misdemeanor to sleep or camp on state-owned property. Previously, the state only required homeless people to receive one warning before issuing a citation. The law will also allow local governments to allocate up to 25% of state public safety funds to help homeless outreach efforts.

Developing and using this type of legal technique can help a firm find a new source of revenue while boosting client satisfaction. All lawyers should be aware of the importance of this type of strategy and how it can benefit their business.
