New Laws for Legal Services Providers

Law is a field that is always changing. As legal firms seek out new opportunities, they may find themselves looking at what is called “law new.” While it can be hard to pin down exactly what this means, in general it is a way for legal services providers to provide more comprehensive and unique legal services that are not found in standard practices.

The process of creating a new law begins with the idea of a policy. The idea can come from a Senator, the office of the Governor or the public. Once a policy is decided upon, it must be drafted into bill form. This drafting process is done by staff of the Senate and other state agencies.

Once a draft is complete, it can be introduced to the Senate. The Senate will then vote on the bill and, if approved, it becomes law.

This new law will allow victims of crime to apply for victim compensation funds without having to report a crime to police. It will also allow victims to use alternative forms of proof for their case. This law is named after Matthew Horan, a student at the University of Buffalo who died from a drug overdose.

Another new law aims to make it easier for residents to get access to drug testing resources. It allows local pharmacies and health care professionals to distribute fentanyl testing kits. This will help prevent more accidental overdoses in the future.

These are just a few of the laws that were passed during this legislative session. To see all of the legislation, visit the Senate’s Bills and Laws page.

The New York State Constitution, laws of the State of New York, and changes to existing laws (known as bills) are all included here. Additionally, a searchable archive of slip law texts — the official copies of enacted laws published by GPO — is available.

The law is the fundamental framework that guides how government operates and governs the people of a society or nation. It is a set of rules that determines what people can and cannot do, and the penalties that will be imposed if they violate those rules.
