A law new may describe a new method of legal practice, a different approach to client service or a form of alternative business structure. It may also refer to a new area of the law that isn’t yet widely accepted but is growing quickly. Whatever the definition, “new law” can offer lawyers a fresh way to meet client needs, boost revenue and become more competitive.
The process of making a new law in Canada begins with proposed policy that is developed by the Government and then presented to Cabinet for approval to draft a bill. Once approved by the Cabinet, the bill is then referred to Parliament for consideration. A draft bill can undergo several changes before it is voted on and becomes law. The process is similar in the United States. A bill to create a law can be introduced in either the House of Representatives or Senate by a senator or member of Congress. Once a bill is introduced, it is assigned to a committee where members research, discuss and make changes before it can be put to a vote. If a bill passes both chambers of Congress, it is sent to the President who can approve it or reject it. The President can also refer a bill to the Supreme Court to decide whether it should be made into a law.
