What is Law New?

Law new is an emergent phenomenon which flourished after the GFC and can be loosely defined as the extensive use of Legal Tech combined with a new pricing model. However, two features of this phenomenon stand out. One is the use of committee reports – a requirement that all bills for the House of Representatives have them, which set out clearly what each bill is intended to do. These reports are invaluable as sources of legislative history and are useful to judges, lawyers and the public.
