Here’s How Kim Kardashian-West Is Taking Her Career A Step Further

Kim Kardashian West Is Studying To Take The Bar Exam And Become A Lawyer.

Kim Kardashian’s career is taking another unexpected turn. For someone often criticized for not having an easily definable job, the reality-star-turned-entrepreneur is currently studying to become a lawyer.

The reality TV star wants to take the California bar exam in 2022, she said in an interview with Vogue.
Kardashian West said she began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer. She also played a key role in the release of Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old woman who served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug charge.

I’m so thankful that Ms. Alice Johnson gets to enjoy Thanksgiving this year with her family: God is so good 🙏🏼

Discussing her decision to venture into a law career, she told US Vogue: “I had to think long and hard about this.

“The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, ‘Oh, shit. I need to know more.’

“I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair.

“But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.

“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.”

Kardashian West’s interest in the law will see her follow in the footsteps of her father Robert Kardashian, who was a member of OJ Simpson’s defence team.

She said: “On the weekends they used our home as an office, with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro.

“My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his OJ evidence books. On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics.”

She is now being mentored by two lawyers, Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney, who are helping her log her required 18 hours of weekly supervised study.

Over the summer she will take what is known as the “baby bar” administered by the state of California and, if she passes, she will be allowed to continue for three more years of study.

She said: “First year of law school, 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.”

“It’s never one person who gets things done,” she said. “It’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.”
California is one of four states that allows someone an alternate method to take the bar exam other than attending law school.
