Kim Kardashian is studying to become a lawyer

Reality superstar completing legal apprenticeship, with plans to sit bar exam in 2022

Kim Kardashian has revealed she is studying to become a lawyer. Yes, you read that correctly. The social media superstar began a four-year legal apprenticeship with a law firm last summer, with a view to sitting the California bar exam in 2022.

News of Kim K’s fledgeling legal career comes almost a year she met with President Donald Trump to discuss reforms to the US prison system. In an interview several months later, Kim’s husband, Kanye West, said:

“My wife is in law school now, and it’s extremely serious to us”.

But the reality starts representatives later clarified that she wasn’t actually in law school, but “is so entrenched in the legal system with her activism that it is like going to law school”.

However, what Kim K’s people neglected to say was that she was studying to become a lawyer without going to law school.

Speaking in an interview with Vogue, The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has now confirmed she’s completing her studies via a four-year apprenticeship with an unnamed law firm in San Francisco and plans to sit the California bar in 2022. This is possible because California is one of a number of US states that allow aspiring lawyers to sit their final bar exams without a law degree.

During the lengthy interview, Kim reveals how her legal studies are going:

“First year of law school,” Kim says, “you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts. To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me. The reading is what really gets me. It’s so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds.”

Given the above, it would appear that the 38-year-old socialite has a natural aptitude for criminal law, just like her father, Robert Kardashian, a US defence lawyer who famously worked on OJ Simpson’s murder trial.

Her father hardly worked on OJ’s trial. He updated his licence and joined the team with the sole aim of keeping him out the witness box.

OJ

Every little helps!

There’s only a 1-3% pass rate of bar exam of the date for those who go down the apprenticeship route. While I wish Ms Kardashian well, I highly doubt she will pass the bar.

Typos soz

For those that go down the apprenticeship route, the pass rate roughly 1-3%. While I wish Ms Kardashian well, I highly doubt she will pass the bar.

hire a copy editor omg

not impressed

“REALITY STAR’s”!! You couldn’t even be bothered to put an apostrophe on your stupid typo either!

Why can’t you just spend 5 minutes to proof read this utter pug wash nonsense?! Disgraceful. No wonder you’re journalists; PAs would spit on you, let alone lawyers.

Since Kim Kardashian is announcing this news to the public, chances are she already has passed the requisite exams years ago and secured a position in a magic circle firm. If Trump can become president of the United States of America then Kim will probably become a partner within 5 years and the White House’s legal advisor like Podesta…

How nice it must be to have the wealth and connections to be able to bypass the traditional law school route and to do an unpaid apprenticeship. Kim K will have access to the best tutors money can buy.

Although I doubt she will pass the CA bar exam, even with her resources. It’s notoriously tricky. A recent statistic from one year is that approx 8,500 candidates from law school sat the CA bar exam; the pass rate was roughly 45%- 50%. 45 candidates from the apprenticeship route sat the bar exam, and only 3 passed.

I can’t wait to hear her first closing speech “So…there was, like, this GUY, and he was a real douchebag, and OH MY GOD, he was like, nearly 50, and that’s just ‘ewwwwww’. I could never date a guy THAT old, well, not unless he was like, a billionaire like Kanye, who, by the way, is a musical genius. Like, EVERYONE says so, but mostly him. So, anyway, back to the guy, he was, like, walking down the sidewalk in……I actually can’t remember, but it was a real crummy part of town with, like, no decent boutiques whatsoever and I would never go there in a million years, but for whatever reason he was there, maybe that is where he lived, I dunno, because I started to read the papers but it was like, sooooooooooo boring….”
