Law new is a term that many companies, startups and law firm subsidiaries have adopted as a way to highlight their practice of providing legal services in completely new ways. Those practices can include everything from working with underserved communities to coming up with new strategies for reaching clients.
While this field is still only a small part of the overall legal profession, it’s one that is rapidly growing. That growth is in large part due to the fact that more and more lawyers are finding that they can do so much more than simply offering legal help to those who need it.
The concept of law new is based on the idea that there are always new things to learn, new people who need help and new ways for law firms to provide it. It is a mindset that allows firms to find a new source of revenue and create a new way of doing business.
A New Look at the Legislative Process
The process by which an idea becomes a law is one that can be complicated, but it can also be simple and easy to understand. Throughout the course of a session, members of both houses of the Legislature draft and pass bills that become law. They then present those bills to the Governor who has 10 days (not counting Sundays) to sign or veto them. If the Governor vetoes a bill, it is automatically returned to the house that first passed it.
If the Governor signs a bill, it becomes law. If he vetoes a bill, the House that originally passed it must override his veto.
How a Bill Becomes Law
In order to be considered as a law, a bill must first be drafted by the staff of the Legislative Bill Drafting Commission or by an interest group or other lawyer who has submitted the idea in bill form. The Senate then considers the bill and votes to either approve or reject it.
This process is a long and complex one that requires specialized types of legal training, but it’s an important part of the legislative process. It also requires a significant amount of time and effort from you as a citizen.
You can participate in the legislative process at any point during a session by calling, writing or signing a petition being sent to your Senator, any other legislator or the Governor. This is one way in which you can directly help make our laws better.
