Alumna Teaches Legal Course on Rapper, Actor Ludacris

November 2019

Moraima Ivory, C'91A Georgia State University course being taught by Moriama “Mo” Ivory, C’91, gives students a first-hand glimpse into the legal decisions of rapper, actor and philanthropist Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges.

The course “The Legal Life of Ludacris,” is part of GSU’s Entertainment, Sports and Media Law Initiative led by Ivory. “Success looks like students having a fundamental understanding of the legal principles, and hands-on experience with issues clients deal with on a daily basis,” said Ivory.

“This allows them to go into any law firm and negotiate and advocate for fair and equitable contacts, protection of intellectual property, fair and equal pay, and job opportunities for their clients.”

Ivory, an attorney who studied political science as an undergraduate, said that Spelman helped her develop the confidence and social skills that allow her to be bold and pursue unique opportunities.
