What is Law New?

law new

Law new is a term used to describe startups and law firm subsidiaries augmenting traditional legal services. Companies using the label are often eager to promote their innovative approach and to distinguish themselves from older, established law firms. But the distinction is a bit blurry, and practical detail about how these companies differ from traditional firms may be lacking.


Legislation is an official rule created by Congress or another legislative body. The term law is also used to refer to a written statute passed by Congress (or other legislature) and officially signed into effect. A bill is a proposed law, and a statute is the final written form of legislation.

A committee report is the document that summarily describes a bill’s purpose and scope, provides detailed analysis of its sections, and makes recommendations for approval or rejection. These reports are critical tools for courts, executive departments, and the public to understand the meaning of a bill.
