Clark Atlanta University has hired James Walker, a veteran entertainment attorney, to teach a class on Michael Jackson called Michael Jackson: the Business of Music.
"The class will feature a curriculum that reviews everything about Jackson's empire - from how he negotiated his tours, record deals, and merchandising, to how he revolutionized legal practices related to entertainment copyrights, trademarks, licenses and more," an official press release stated.
"The course will also highlight the late pop-star's dealing in TV, real estate, film and music publishing."
Walker, who has worked with clients like Jamie Foxx, DMX and Bobby Jones, says that the "goal is to help students who have an interest or future desire to work in the entertainment industry whether as artist, attorney, business manager, accountant or other."
