“I wanted to study a woman this time around, and having worked with Kandi in the past, I knew she was the perfect choice. She handles her business and it shows with her success, but all the while she’s completely approachable and willing to share her lessons learned. I couldn’t be happier for my students to learn the law through Kandi’s career.”

Burruss has opened several businesses including a restaurant run by her mother and aunts, Old Lady Gang. She recently won The Masked Singer, competition on Fox.

Students will be guided through deals and contracts that have been key to Burruss’ career. They will also have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers including her mother, manager, and attorneys.
