Kim Kardashian is Studying to Take her Bar Exam in 2022

Kim Kardashian is Studying to Take her Bar Exam in 2022

Kim Kardashian has confirmed she's studying to become a lawyer like her late father Robert Kardashian.

In her May 2019 cover interview with Vogue -Kim Kardashian announced that she is studying to become a lawyer. She must pass California's "baby bar" sometime this summer to continue studying for the remainder of her four-year apprenticeship with a law firm based in San Francisco.

To start the episode, Kanye answered the door and declared himself ready for the lengthy line of questioning, but then Kardashian emerged and informed him that she is actually the subject of the video.

Kim's work with grandmother Alice Marie Johnson secured her release from a 1996 life sentence for cocaine trafficking, when Donald Trump intervened.

"I had to think long and hard about this", she said.

"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 - I need to know more", Kim says.

That case sparked Kim's devotion to criminal justice reform and made her realize that she wanted to know more about the legal system.


Activist and media figure Van Jones, who was a key figure in the campaign, says he was surprised as he "watched Kim Kardashian unleash the most effective, emotionally intelligent intervention that I've ever seen in American politics". "I just thought, 'This is so wrong and so freakish, and how could that be?' I sent it to my attorney and said, 'What can we do?"

"I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society", she told Vogue on Wednesday.

Kim has been told in the past by her own attorneys that she has what it takes to become a lawyer. According to the National Conference of Bar Examiners, only three of the 13,084 Californians who took the bar exam in 2015 were educated through "law office study" (and only two of them passed).

Working to get the bill passed proved eye-opening for Kardashian, who saw first hand the impact a team of law professionals can make. "I was really nosy about the forensics". Super easy for me. "It's so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds", she explains.

Her dad famously defended O.J. Simpson in 1995, during his trial for the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, of which he was found not guilty. The reading is what really gets me.

In the meantime, she said she is taking an interest in other cases of inmates calling for early release from prison.
