Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kim Kardashian West defended her commitment to study law and take the bar exam in 2022 after many criticized her and claim that she is able to take the easy way out because of her wealth and celebrity status.
In a profile published by Vogue, the 38-year-old TV star and business mogul revealed that she’s been working on a four-year apprenticeship program at a non-profit prison reform organization based in Oakland. After completing the said program, she will then be on her way to taking the bar exam in 2022.
Many criticized the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star, claiming that she’s able only to pursue this route because of her status and her wealth. Although the State of California allows people to practice law even without law degrees, Kardashian was scrutinized for pursuing the legal profession without a college degree and without getting formal instruction at a law school.
She took to Instagramto defend her pursuit of the legal profession, shutting down critics.
In her post, Kardashian said that she already registered in the California Star 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,” West said.
Addressing her critics, the mother of three said, “I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals.”
In response to comments saying she did not finish college, she explained that she finished 75 credits in college, which is more than enough than what is required for her law apprenticeship.
Kardashian also thanked her mentors in the post, lawyers Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
