Kim Kardashian reveals law school hopes

News comes after reports she asked Amal Clooney for mini-pupillage at Doughty Street Chambers

Kim Kardashian West has gone public with her dream to become a lawyer.

The reality TV star, who last year reportedly asked Amal Clooney to help line her up work experience, tells the new issue of Wonderland Magazine:

If things slow down and I had time, I really want to go to law school — just something I can do in my older age.

The move would see Kardashian follow in the footsteps of her attorney dad, Robert Kardashian, who famously represented OJ Simpson.

But there is a hitch. Kardashian has never been to university. And, unlike in the UK where non-graduates can become lawyers via the legal apprentice route, in the US a degree is required before you can enter law school.

That would leave qualification on these shores as Kardashian’s quickest route to her lawyer dream. This may explain why she was apparently so keen for fellow celeb Amal Clooney to help her bag a mini-pupillage at London human rights set Doughty Street.

At the time, it was claimed that Clooney had been “dodging” Kardashian’s requests. And a year on, with Doughty Street’s mini-pupillage system still closed, it would seem that Kardashian would have to look elsewhere to get that first taste of life in the legal profession.

Applications for vac schemes at City law firms open on 1 October, Kim.

It would spell the end of respect for the legal profession if that inbred ever managed to get in.

Even if she went to a law school, she could never succeed as a lawyer, not acquire respect of clients and legal professionals.

If I was rich and famous, I’d just sit on my arse (which is admittedly not as ample as hers) all day; I certainly wouldn’t get a job which entails demanding clients, abusive bosses, long hours and a lot of very boring reading and writing.

Do you really think she would be doing any of those things? She wants to qualify as a lawyer, and then open her own law firm where the cases are handled by her employees.

She’ll never have a client, and will simply “manage” the firm, from a distance, and whenever she actually attends the office she will be photographed doing so.

She wants to own her own law firm. Nothing more.

I wouldn’t mind sitting on my face, as long as I executed a valid will beforehand.

I understood that she was interested in the Armenian genocide.

Perhaps she’s not a complete dumbass?

I don’t get what is wrong with her wanting to get an education. She often gets accused of being vapid and then when she expresses an interest to do something worthwhile people are desperate for her to fail.

She’ll also need to ensure no one on earth remembers the fact she put out a rather unsatisfying sex tape a while back.

You really are such prudes.
Circa 1997 somewhere in Tottenham a female solicitor was discovered by her colleagues to be working as a prostitute in the evening. Outraged, her principal reported her to the Law Society (No SRA then).
The Law Society held: as long as she kept the two professions apart, she was cool.
