Kim Kardashian West is on track to become a full-fledged lawyer by 2022

Like Father, Like Daughter
Kim Kardashian West now has legal ambitions up her sleeve...

Kim Kardashian West has her fingers in many pies. The reality TV star is already a fashion, lifestyle and beauty entrepreneur but now, she’s got her sights set on a new career in law. 

It turns out, Kardashian West began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer and she’s aiming to sit the California bar exam in 2022. 

She’s not the first Kardashian to enter the law field – her lawyer dad, Robert Kardashian, famously defended OJ Simpson during his trial in the 1990s. It’s safe to say she has been influenced by his trajectory, saying, “My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his OJ evidence books. On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics.”

According to CNN, she’s already exercised her legal prowess last summer too, playing an integral role in the release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug charge.

But she’s definitely got her work cut out as studying law is no mean feat – and she knows it too, “The reading is what really gets me. It’s so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds. To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep.”

Here’s to a fruitful career! Imagine she starts defending Hollywood’s most notorious figures? Now that would be something…
