Updated Practice Act Signed
While most of us was enjoying a leisurely week leading up to the 4th of July holiday weekend, the NJ Legislature was busy. In just 3 days, both the state senate and assembly pass the NJSRC’s proposed bill, and before this article was finished, the governor has signed the bill into law.
