I don’t follow Kim Kardashian’s career much but I definitely respect her for the work she has done with prison reform. In 2018, she used her massive platform to help free Alice Marie Johnson, a 64-year-old woman who was served 19 years in prison for non violent drug charges. I can respect that.
Keep pushing Kim, you got this!
People Magazine — Kardashian West first announced in Vogue in 2019 that she plans to become a lawyer like her father Robert Kardashian Sr. — a former high-powered attorney who notably represented O.J. Simpson in his 1995 murder trial. She is working on completing a four-year law apprenticeship and has taken the introductory bar exam, known as the baby bar.
Though she did attend Pierce College in Los Angeles, she never graduated. However, California, as well as three other U.S. states, offers a path to passing the bar without attending law school by “reading the law,” or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or judge.
Back in May, Kardashian West told fans on Instagram that taking the baby bar exam has been “extremely difficult,” but that she would test again.
“Unfortunately, I haven’t passed yet, but I’m not giving up,” Kardashian said. “I’m preparing to take it again soon.”
Her end goal, regardless of the timeline, is clear though: “Hopefully one day I can start a law firm where we can help people pro bono and hire people who were formerly incarcerated.”
