Kim Kardashian Esquire?
So, I am not sure if you guys have heard the news, but the world’s favorite reality star, Kim Kardashian has announced that she plans to take the California Bar Exam in 2022.
This has many people confused considering that she did not graduate college and is not currently enrolled in law school. However, there is a caveat.
California is one of three states that allows individuals to sit for the Bar Exam without attending law school if they meet other requirements. Specifically passing an exam known as the “baby bar” and completing a minimum number of hours of verified legal work.
According to Kim, she is in the first year of a four year apprenticeship with a firm in San Francisco, and she plans on taking the “baby bar” some time in the summer of 2019.
This announcement has met with some general skepticism as well as other attorneys feeling as though she is diminishing the hard work and diligence that it takes to become an attorney and especially to pass the California Bar Exam, which has the lowest pass rate in the country.
But you know what I say? Good for her! I mean this woman is a millionairess mogul and has accomplished everything else that she has set her mind to. I passed my Bar Exam when I was nine months pregnant with my second daughter, so I personally believe we reality star mamas are capable of anything! Also, as an attorney, I love that she is bringing a bit of glam to our profession.
