New law is a catchall industry term used to describe the various new methods, techniques, tools and strategies employed by legal professionals, in-house lawyers and other industry participants in their pursuit of improved legal service delivery for business clients. Typical examples include collaborative processes, process efficiency improvements, the use of technology, increased staffing (either full time or on a contract basis) and an emphasis on value rather than hours billed.
The goal of new law is to produce change that is impactful to legal consumers and society-at-large. It is an industry-wide paradigm shift from provider-centricity to customer impact fueled by technology and data. Profits will no longer be derived from adherence to legacy economic models, outdated legal education and self-regulation but from an integrated platform-based law delivery structure that is agile, flexible, cost effective, efficient, data-backed, solution focused, and driven by end-user needs and net promoter score.
Law new is a multidisciplinary team sport that requires legal practitioners, “techies,” process/project managers and cross-functional enterprise colleagues to work together in a collaborative, strategic manner to reverse engineer and deliver better outcomes and experience. It is not about buying fit-for-purpose software and implementing it, though it will often involve that. Instead, it is about integrating that software into a delivery plan that is driven by end-user need and produces improved customer/end-user experience, outcomes and values.
