Look at who is going to be a lawyer! In an interview with Vogue published on Wednesday, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star revealed that she decided last summer to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, with the goal of taking the bar in 2022 to become a licensed attorney!
She is definitely following in her father’s footsteps, Rob Kardashian who was O.J. Simpson’s former attorney. She also last year, successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender. After Johnson was released, a major bipartisan piece of criminal justice–reform legislation, the FIRST STEP Act, was passed by Congress and signed into law by Trump in December.
With all this however, I am sure you are still asking how she can become a licensed attorney since she doesn’t have a college degree.
Kardashian West did go to undergrad, briefly attending Pierce College in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But she never graduated.
But that won’t stop Kardashian since California is 1 out of 4 states (Virginia, Vermont and Washington are the others) that allow you to do a four year apprenticeship under a licensed attorney in order to take state bar exam without having to go to college or law school.
So far torts is the hardest and criminal law is the easiest class for her. The exam also want be that easy to pass for her since only 60 of 83,986 persons that took the bar last year and took this alternative route actually passed.
Good luck Kimmie!
