New York City Legislation – Law New
As a profession, law is always evolving. New challenges arise quickly, and what worked one quarter may not work the next. As a result, it’s important for those in the legal field to be open to all possibilities and embrace change at every turn. A good example of this is the concept known as “law new.” Although it can be hard to define, law new can be defined as a way for a legal firm to use new approaches in its service to clients. This can include embracing technology, finding new ways to serve clients and creating strategies that are not found in the traditional realm of a law practice.
This bill would require City agencies to provide employees and job applicants with notice of federal and state student loan forgiveness programs. The bill would also align the City’s data breach notification laws with requirements under New York State law, and clarify how the City’s Chief Privacy Officer and Office of Cyber Command would be notified of security breaches that affect private information.
