When Kim Kardashian first became a household name, no one could have ever expected that one day she’d become a lawyer. Even though her father was an accomplished lawyer, everyone assumed that Kardashian didn’t have the capacity to follow his footsteps. She’s proving everyone wrong. In just a few more years, Kardashian will likely have her law degree.
However, she still has plenty of misconceptions to battle. Kim Kardashian will become a lawyer without finishing college Kim Kardashian | Jordin Althaus\/E! Entertainment\/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Kardashian has long dreamed about following in her father‘s footsteps and becoming a lawyer.
Although she’s been able to help people, like Alice Johnson, without her law degree, she feels that she’d be able to accomplish a lot more with it. “I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society,” Kardashian told Vogue last April.
“I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.” Although Kardashian is keen to study law, she won’t actually have to finish college to do it. California has a program where a person with at least 60 college credits can study law through an apprenticeship program.
Kardashian didn’t earn her bachelor’s degree in college, but she did earn 75 credits, more than enough for her to qualify for this program. She’ll be studying with two attorney mentors: Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney. Kim Kardashian isn’t buying her way into a law career View this post on Instagram 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\u2019ve seen some comments from people who are saying it\u2019s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that\u2019s not the case.
One person actually said I should \u201cstay in my lane.\u201d 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\u2019t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who\u2019s state allows it.
It\u2019s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in \u201creading the law\u201d, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it\u2019s 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\u2019t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting.....
