Law New – New Ways to Deliver Legal Services

law new

Law new refers to ways to deliver legal services in innovative, efficient and cost effective ways. The concept is a subset of the overall law firm business strategy that encompasses a wide range of ideas to create and deliver value to clients. This is usually done by leveraging technology, embracing process and focusing on multidisciplinary teamwork (“non-lawyers”). It has become a catchall term for a number of different strategies that are often confused with legal tech, “legal ops” or ALSPs (Alternative Legal Service Providers), all of which are important but do not produce the paradigm change that is needed to serve the industry’s large base of legal consumers.

The first step in delivering better legal service is changing the mindset of both law firms and in-house legal departments. This is not an easy task as it requires a paradigm shift in the way that legal services are delivered and measured. This involves moving away from a fee-centric model to one that is driven by a high net promoter score and customer impact. It will require collaboration across multiple provider sources, a focus on customer and community-centric outcomes, a commitment to efficiency, the use of agile project management techniques and a desire for innovation and scale.

It requires the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, in consultation with the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection, to prepare a notice for City agencies to distribute to their employees and job applicants regarding student loan forgiveness programs.

It is part of a wave of legislation that is being enacted in response to the racial reckoning that has followed George Floyd’s death and other fatal police shootings of black people.

It prohibits an employer from discriminating against a person on the basis of their gender identity or expression, and applies to all employers and workplaces, including private businesses and government agencies. It expands upon a law that was passed last year in Illinois, known as Jett Hawkins’ Law, after the 4-year-old boy was told to take his braids out because they violated school dress codes. The measure was introduced by Rep. Ida Nelson, who began a campaign after the incident and pushed for the bill’s passage. The law was signed by Gov. JB Pritzker.
