Nancy Grace Early Life & Education
Nancy Ann Grace was born in Macon, Georgia on October 23, 1959. Nancy was raised in a working-class family with two siblings, and she and her family attended Macon’s Liberty United Methodist Church on a regular basis. Grace attended Valdosta State University after graduating from high school. She then transferred to Mercer University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts.
Shakespeare initially drew her attention, but her priorities shifted after her fiancé was tragically murdered when she was 19 years old. Grace became determined to pursue a legal career as a result of this incident.
She enrolled in the Walter F. George School of Law and graduated with a Juris Doctorate. She then went on to earn a Masters of Laws in constitutional and criminal law from New York University. Even after graduation, she maintained close ties with the academic community, and she once taught litigation at the Georgia State College of Law. She is also a member of the Mercer University Board of Trustees.
Nancy Grace Net Worth & Career
Nancy is best known as the host of Nancy Grace, a victims’ advocate/celebrity news/current affairs show on HLN that debuted in 2005.
Her no-nonsense approach to issues, which she describes as a “victims’ rights” perspective, is delivered in an outspoken manner that has earned her both praise and criticism. She also hosted Court TV’s Closing Arguments from 1996 to 2007. Objection! : How High-Priced Defense Attorneys, Celebrity Defendants, and a 24/7 Media Have Hijacked Our Criminal Justice System was co-written by Nancy Grace. In the first season of the syndicated courtroom reality show Swift Justice, she served as an arbiter alongside Nancy Grace.
Nancy Grace was replaced by former Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass after the show relocated from Atlanta, Georgia (where she lives).
Under Glass, the show was not renewed for a second season. Grace enrolled in law school after losing her fiancé, Keith Griffin, to murder when she was only 19 years old, and went on to become a felony prosecutor and supporter of victims’ rights. She earned her Juris Doctor from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer (Macon, Georgia) and a Master of Laws in constitutional and criminal law from New York University, working her way up through the ranks, beginning as a legal writer and eventually clerking for a federal judge.
Nancy was a Special Prosecutor in the District Attorney’s Office of Atlanta-Fulton County, Georgia for nearly a decade before accepting an offer from Court TV to do a legal commentary show with now-famous attorney Johnnie Cochran (both famous and infamous as the attorney who got former athlete O.J. Simpson off pretty much scot-free after Simpson was accused of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman). Nancy Grace left Court TV in 2005 to launch her own show, which she continues to host to this day. During the show, she is also known for her signature exclamations, such as “Bombshell Tonight!” “Let the Lawyers loose!” and “Cut his (her) mic!”
