After a year gaining valuable work experience, Aliayah moved to Macon, Georgia to attend Mercer University School of Law, where she graduated with her Juris Doctor Cum Laude.

While competing on the various teams, Aliayah was not only awarded Best Advocate of all sixty-four individual advocates, but she was inducted into a national honorary organization, Order of Barristers, for excelling in oral advocacy. Aliayah also had the unique privilege of serving as President of the Black Law Students Association for the 2017-2018 school year.
