Kim Kardashian is studying to become a lawyer - but she's not going to law school...
At this point, nothing surprises us anymore. Not even Kim Kardashian trying to becoming a lawyer. Yea, it's happening.
But she's NOT going to law school.
In a new interview with "Vogue", Kim says she's doing it through California's "reading the law" program, where you study on your own and work with a practicing attorney.
The mother of three plans to take the bar exam in 2022...
@KimKardashian is used to being underestimated. If the media mogul/beauty entrepreneur/soon-to-be mother of four's next act-studying law-seems unlikely, perhaps it shouldn't. "This is the daughter of an accomplished attorney and the mother of three black kids who is using her full power to make a difference on a tough issue and is shockingly good at it," says @CNN commentator and activist @vanjones68. Jones brings up the Elle Woods character from @legallyblondemovies as perhaps the only archetype we have in the culture through which to understand such an unlikely turn of events. "But she's so much deeper than that," he says, "because the gravity of the issues she's taking on is so tragic and all-pervasive. I think she's going to be a singular person in American life." In many demonstrable ways-for better or [email protected] already is. But if she were to pass the bar, it would be the most surprising rebranding since @Barbie got woke, a case to be studied at @harvardhbs for years to come. (Indeed, she has been invited to speak at Harvard later this year "on branding and media.") "I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me, because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what's important to me after they've met me," @KimKardashian says.

She's doing a four-year apprenticeship with a firm in San Francisco...
Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I've seen some comments from people who are saying it's my privilege or my money that got me here, but that's not the case. One person actually said I should "stay in my lane." I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn't care who you are. This option is available to anyone who's state allows it. It's true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in "reading the law", which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it's not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can't do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine - It's never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️

"Helping" President Trump with prison reform was the turning point for Kim, but she says her interest in law goes back to seeing her dad, Robert Kardashian, work on the O.J. Simpson case.
She stated, "My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his O.J. evidence books. On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics."

Van Jones from CNN has been working on prison reform with Kim, and he gives her MASSIVE credit for being able to get Trump on board. And he says she's not what most people think she is.
Quote, "This is the daughter of an accomplished attorney and the mother of three black kids who is using her full power to make a difference on a tough issue and is shockingly good at it."
