Law new is a concept that encompasses everything from the newest technologies used to improve legal services delivery and client outcomes to the way lawyers are working differently with clients, the business of law, other professionals, enterprises and even society at large. This evolution is a result of the law’s shift from provider to customer-centricity, enabled by technology and driven by human adaptation to a rapidly changing world.
The process of law new begins when a problem is identified and legislation is needed to solve the issue. This can be as simple as a legal matter that needs to be resolved, or a change to existing law that is no longer effective in meeting the needs of the public. Problems can be brought to the attention of the Commission through petitions from individuals and organizations, by the Governor and other officers of state government, or by bar associations and other organizations representing practitioners and lay persons. The Commission then studies the problem and, after reviewing the existing statutes of the state and current judicial decisions, ascertains whether the problems require legislative intervention.
Upon determining that a problem exists, the Commission formulates a proposal for legislation to correct the problem. The proposals are submitted to the Legislature for consideration and debate. Once the bills are passed, they become law. The legislation passed by the legislature, as well as any amendments to laws already enacted, are published in the Statutes at Large. The Statutes at Large are the official, printed collection of laws enacted by the legislature and signed by the Governor.
