The Future of the Practice of Law

The Monash Prato Centre is delighted to welcome Mr Jeff Modisett, CEO of Nextlaw Global Referral Network LLC in Los Angeles.

In addition to their regular units, students from 2019’s Monash Prato Law Program are fortunate to be invited to this unique Enrichment Seminar on  Wed 19 June.

Jeff has a diverse background in law, politics and high technology. From early experience clerking for the Chief Justice of the United States District Court, he worked, among other roles, as a county prosecutor, overseeing the successful prosecution of Mike Tyson for rape. He later participated as a member of the 1997 states' negotiating team seeking settlement for historic changes to the way cigarettes are marketed in the US.

Monash students and students from partner universities will have the opportunity to hear first-hand about Jeff’s legal career, including his most recent experience working within private practice, having led or assisted in the resolution of numerous complex issues or litigation in recent years, with clients including Facebook, Airbnb, LegalZoom, Lyft and Microsoft.
