When it comes to the practice of law, firms are always looking for ways to be more efficient and offer the kinds of services that clients need. One such strategy that’s becoming increasingly popular is called “law new,” which means offering legal services in different and innovative ways. This kind of practice can be a great way to generate revenue and help clients in ways that weren’t previously possible. It can also be a way to add value to the firm without impacting other areas of practice that may still be the primary focus.
While it can be challenging to keep up with all the changes in legal technology and new legal service models, many lawyers see a lot of potential in this area of the law. In fact, some law firms have even made this aspect of their business a key component of their overall strategy. However, it is important to understand that this new approach has its own complexities and is not a replacement for traditional practices.

A new law is a formally introduced legislative proposal. Most ideas for new laws are in the form of bills, which are numbered H.R. (House of Representatives) and S. (Senate) and arranged in the order they are introduced during each Congress. The bill’s title and a description of the problem or issue it is designed to address are often printed on the cover. The bills are then sent to committees for further examination and, if appropriate, to the floor of both houses for a vote. The bills are then published in the Statutes at Large as public laws (PL) numbers and linked to slip law texts.
This bill would amend the City’s data breach notification laws to align them with requirements under State law. Specifically, the bill would require that any City agency that suffers a data breach involving private identifying information must promptly disclose such information to affected individuals and to the City’s Chief Privacy Officer and Office of Cyber Command. Moreover, the bill would extend the requirement to include disclosures to employees of a company that is an entity that receives such information from the City for purposes of providing services. It would also require that a company certify that it is compliant with these requirements. The bill would also repeal the existing subchapter of the City’s administrative code that regulates third-party food delivery services.
