The Mississippi Law Journal is pleased to announce the election of Nivory Gordon as Editor-in-Chief for Volume 93.
Nivory is from Selma, Alabama, and is the son of Nivory Jr. and Rachel Gordon. Aside from Journal,
Nivory is also a member of the Deans Leadership Council, Moot Court Board, Trial Advocacy
Board, where he serves as the External Vice Chairman, and the Constance Slaughter Harvey Chapter
of the Black Law Students Association, where he also serves the Vice President. Nivory is a Gates
Millennium Scholar and received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering
from The University of Alabama.
Last summer, Nivory served as a Judicial Intern for the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Texas for the Hon. Amos Mazzant, III in Sherman, Texas. This summer Nivory plans to
return home to clerk for Beasley Allen P.C. in Montgomery, Alabama. In his spare time, Nivory
enjoys spending time with friends and family, reading, writing, working out, binge watch shows on
Netflix, and collecting vinyl records.
Nivory is most excited about seeing Volume 93 come to life and seeing his classmates transition into
their new leadership roles, and welcome new staff editors to Journal. He envisions MLJ having an
EPIC year, centered on the mission to produce excellent scholarship that purposefully impacts the
state of Mississippi and the legal community while adding to the linage and legacy of the Journal.
