Law new is the idea of offering legal services in a way that is completely different than what most lawyers do. This could mean a wide variety of things, from working with underserved communities or creating strategies that don’t have much to do with traditional legal practice.
Whether it’s through the creation of an entirely new service or just by adding more to what your firm already offers, this concept is one that can be very helpful for both clients and your firm as a whole. The key is knowing how to make it work for you.
This term is often used in a general sense to describe the idea of offering legal help in a new way, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case for every type of law firm or company. There are a few ways to make this type of approach more efficient and profitable for your firm.
The laws of New York are numerous and varied, ranging from constitutional and statutory law to administrative law and regulations promulgated by state agencies. These regulations are sometimes called delegated legislation, but they are also a source of persuasive authority for both legal practitioners and courts.
These rules and regulations are often compiled in a book called the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR). They’re generally created by a state agency and they may be useful to lawyers who want to gain some insight into what a particular law requires.
Another way that New York’s laws change is through the passage of new bills. These bills can be minor fixes to existing laws or they can be very specific to a certain industry. Some of these changes are expected to be phased in over time, while others will have a noticeable impact on the lives of New Yorkers and the direction of the state’s policymaking.
For example, a bill named after Carlos Moncayo, a construction worker who was killed at a construction site, has been passed to increase the accountability of corporations that cause the death of workers in New York construction sites. This law would allow for corporate criminal liability if a corporation was negligent, reckless or knowingly caused the death of an employee at a construction site.
A number of other similar bills have been passed over the past several years, and some are scheduled to be enacted in 2022. Some of them will be effective immediately, while others are only expected to take effect 90 or 180 days after enactment.
Providing Notice about Student Loan Forgiveness Programs
This bill will require the Department of Citywide Administrative Services and DCWP to prepare a notice for employees and job applicants regarding the availability of federal and state student loan forgiveness programs. The notice would be made available to all city employers and DCWP is required to publish it online.
Creating greater accountability for tragic and avoidable workplace injury
A bill named after Carlos Moncayo, the construction worker who was killed at a construction job in 2015, has been enacted to increase the accountability of corporations that cause the deaths of workers in New York construction sites. This bill creates a criminal corporate liability for companies that cause the death or serious physical injury of a worker while on the job, and it increases penalties for companies who retaliate against employees who file claims or report workplace injuries.
