Kim Kardashian Is Going To School To Be a Lawyer, Will Take The Bar in 2022

If you think you’ll ever be finding yourself into some legal trouble, you might want to hang on until 2022 because you may just have the chance to have Kim Kardashian represent you.

Yes, Kim Kardashian is going to school to be a lawyer and plans to take the bar exam in 2022.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Kim reveals she’s studying to become a lawyer and decided last summer to to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, with the goal of taking the bar in 2022.

Major goals, right?

For those that thought Kim was nothing but a reality TV star, this should change that viewpoint…

And here’s the thing, this wasn’t a quick and unthought decision.

In fact, Kim has been working on the plans for this for months.

She has been working with author and CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, cofounders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform, for months, visiting prisons, petitioning governors, and attending meetings at the White House.

So, what led her down this path?

Aside from the fact her late father was an experienced and well-known attorney, she had to put some thought into it.

In the interview she went on to saying:

“I had to think long and hard about this. I never in a million years thought we would get to the point of getting laws passed. That was really a turning point for me.”

What Kim was talking about above was the fact that she successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.

And sure, if you’re wondering how she could go to law school without attending college, you should know that California, as well as three other U.S. states, offer another path to passing the bar by “reading the law,” or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or judge.

According to Vogue, sometime this summer, Kim will take what is known as the “baby bar” administered by the state; if she passes, she will be given the okay to continue for three more years of study.

I really do wish Kim all the best and hope she achieves her goal of becoming an attorney.

Can we all just agree that she’ll probably have the cutest attorney attire?

I’m thinking legally blonde just less pink.

This is THE biggest joke in the world. From what I heard on other news outlets, she's not doing any schooling, just working at this firm. Tell me how this is acceptable?! People go to school for years to become a lawyer. Now, Kim Kardashian decides she wants to do this, because she helped a couple people. Go to school, or at least be a paralegal. That would at least make some sense. Let someone that dedicated their life to this profession have that opportunity. Not someone that does it as a hobby!
