Law new is fresh icing on the stale cake of legal industry paradigms. It will be shaped by two principal sources: (1) large-scale legal buyer activism; and (2) corporate Goliaths with the brand, capital, know-how, customer-centricity, data mastery, tech platforms, agile, multidisciplinary workforces, and footprint in/familiarity with the legal industry that allow them to reverse-engineer existing paradigms. The latter category may include Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple, and other technology leaders whose name strikes fear into the hearts of legacy legal stakeholders.
Collaboration will be a cornerstone of law new. Legal practitioners and allied legal professionals, as well as their cross-functional enterprise colleagues, will work together to address business challenges and capture opportunities at the speed of customers and society. This will require a holistically diverse, team-oriented, tech and data-proficient, and highly empathetic workforce.
Legal practitioners will collaborate across legal siloes, erasing artificial, lawyer-created distinctions between provider sources. This will include integration of the legal supply chain, erasing artificial distinctions between firm and in-house legal departments and between law firms and law companies. This will allow for the sharing of information and risk mitigation, thereby lowering costs, increasing efficiency, and enabling new business opportunities.
Law new will incorporate an integrated delivery platform model that allows the legal function to source agile, fluid, on-demand resources with verifiable, material expertise and experience in a seamless manner. This will enable the legal function to avoid significant lost opportunity costs from protracted disputes, free-up management for critical enterprise goals, and produce better-informed risk assessment, decision driving, and value creation.

A bill is a formal legislative proposal that contains proposed laws or amendments to current laws. Most bills are introduced in Congress and assigned a number. Those that become Public Laws, or Acts, are published in the Statutes at Large and become part of the law of the United States.
