Georgia State University is offering a new course in its legal department. This isn’t any regular legal course; this class is dedicated to the life and career of Steve Harvey.
The course has been put together by Mo Ivory, “a former V-103 and WAOK host [who is] a passionate advocate” for Georgia citizens, per Black Enterprise. She’s teamed up with the university to teach the course on Atlanta’s own Harvey. The class size is small, only open to 32 students in their second or third year of law school. She told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “I want to keep the conversations intimate.”
In prior classes, Ivory has taught about other Atlanta celebrities, like “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alumna Kandi Burruss and rapper/businessman Ludacris.
According to GSU, Harvey is excited to have his life at the center of a law school course. He said: “I am grateful that my career was chosen to be the focus for this course. I am engaged on so many projects from television to business deals and everything else in between.” The star noted that thanks to his team and chief legal officer, his “interests are protected with each new venture. I want all aspects of my career to be used to educate the next generation of entertainment lawyers,” Harvey concluded.
