Law holds a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies with a focus in communications and design, which he earned in 2016. He credits his successful career to FAMU’s School of Journalism & Graphic Communication, and says professors like Dorothy Bland and Betty Grable were “instrumental to my growth.” While enrolled in FAMU SJGC, Law took several public relations and mass media courses.

“Having practical experience via activities like serving as the men’s basketball staff writer for The Famuan and hosting an R&B show on 90.5, where I had the opportunity to interview artists like B.oB and Juicy, expanded my capabilities and ignited my passion for storytelling,” he added.
