What matters is the information, not what you think about it.

I have worked as a broadcast journalist and producer with over ten years experience in long-form news and current affairs. Starting at community television in Melbourne, I moved to Sydney to join SBS television's Insight in 2006. This was followed by stints with NITV and the independent production sector,.

Kim Kardashian Studying to Be a Lawyer

By host - AntoinetteDodson
Kim Kardashian announced via a Vogue interview that she’s in the process of studying to become a lawyer and wants to take the bar exam in 2022. Needless to say, the internet was absolutely shook by the revelation. Kim explained that by working to free Alice Marie Johnson last year, she realized she can make a big difference, but she wants to learn more so she can contribute in a bigger way.

Kim chose to pursue a law career through a “reading the law” exception in California, which states that even if you didn’t finish your undergrad degree, you can study for the bar through a four-year apprenticeship at a law firm. For the past year, Kim’s been studying 18 hours a week with two legal mentors to help prepare. FYI, Abraham Lincoln started his career the same way.

Naturally, the internet had plenty to say about that decision. People accused Kim of only being able to do this because of her privilege, said she was making a mockery of the legal system, argued she wouldn’t be a good lawyer because she’d cry too much, and generally told her to “stay in her lane.”

Women are so quick to knock each other down. She has enough money to buy an island but has CHOSEN to better herself instead of sitting on her a**.
Go for it Kim. You can do it.
And BTW - I’ve never watched one episode of the Kardashian’s. I just believe in the dreams of other people.

When I heard she was studying for the bar exam, I was impressed. Seems right up her alley. Good for her! She's a very influential woman in this world, whether people like it or not. I'm sure she'll be expensive for some but also help the less fortunate as well. I think this is a great career path for her.

If she just sat back & collected her millions, people would criticize her for that as well. Good for her for doing something she absolutely does not have to do, just so she can help people. I’m impressed.

I have come to like more and more things about her since she has become more active in the community and shining a light on important national
Issues. I’m the first to say I judged her for how/why she got and maintained fame, but when I think about it, she never really naysays anyone. Maybe she’s just a nice person who’s making the most of her life. Go on girl! I’m rooting for you.

Not trying to knock her or anything(not a fan of the show) I hope she takes this seriously and doesn't make a mockery of this career choice. Two I hope she doesn't think she can just pay her way thru the learning it's not easy it takes time and studying. I would like to see her succeed in this bc she is an influence to women.

I never cared for of paid attention to the Kardashian's. In my eyes. They have never really done anything special to deserve their celebrity status.
If she is taking steps to make her life meaningful, to learn something and get a career. Power to her.
If anything. She has now actually earned a little of my repect.

Not really a fan and I’m not convinced that she’ll be able to be a professional but it’s a start of something new for her and different of what this family accustomed us... and that’s why I wish her good luck! People are so mean nowadays, we really have to put someone down just because her/his actions are different from what we would have done in the same situation?!
