Law is constantly evolving and new trends in practice are emerging. One of these areas, known as law new, is a way of offering legal services in unique ways that benefit clients and offer a different way to approach the profession. This concept can be a difficult one to define, but the term refers to many things including working with underserved communities and offering legal help in new ways. It also means using technology, focusing on process and developing strategies that may not have been a part of standard practice in the past.
