We keep updating you on the on-going interesting things in the Celebrity Desk here at Rouges. This time we’re taking Kim Kardashian and her quest to become an actual lawyer.
Yes, you read that right, Kim Kardashian is following in her Father’s footsteps to become a lawyer. She’s taking a non-traditional path. California allows people who have completed at least 60 credits to intern with a law firm and by completing 18 hours a week and a series of tests, to sit for the bar in California. This morning she posted an instagram pic of her hard at work on tort law.

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’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” 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’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s 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’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine – It’s never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️
She announced this news in her first Vogue solo cover which appears this month. She also recently did a fascinating 73 questions with Vogue and showed off her monastic home.
Kim Kardashian’s father, Rob Kardashian, made himself quite a name for helping OJ avoid a murder charge back in the 1990s (for those who weren’t alive to remember that scandal). She’s interning with the same law firm owned by Van Jones, the popular CNN commentator. She’s commuting between LA and San Francisco and keeping up with her TV show, makeup line, children, and other obligations.
It’s a busy time in Kardashian world!
