Kim Karashian West is studying to become a lawyer.
The reality TV star and beauty mogul revealed to Vogue magazine that she is preparing to take the bar exam and become a lawyer. Kardashian-West graces the cover of the magazine’s May issue and sat down for an interview, which was released Wednesday.
Last summer, Kardashian-West decided to start a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, she told Vogue. Her goal is to take the bar exam in 2022. “I had to think long and hard about this,” she said. What ultimately inspired her was the success of her advocacy campaign to release Alice Marie Johnson from jail.
Kardashian-West, 38, does not have an undergraduate degree, but the state of California does not require one to take the bar. Instead, a student can do an apprenticeship with a lawyer or judge. This is news to me. I thought you had to have a undergraduate degree and then complete your JD before you take the bar exam.
Kardashian-West’s criminal justice crusade may have inspired her to embark on this law degree, but her father, famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian might have also had some influence. The star grew up watching court TV shows, her sisters remember. She was also constantly around her dad’s attorney friends, Vogue reports.
It sounds as though Kardashian has found a way to become a lawyer without putting in the time to go to college.
