Kim Kardashian Fires Back at Those Telling Her to Stay In Her Lane Concerning Law School

Kim Kardashian revealed last week that she is working an apprenticeship at a law firm to ultimately take the bar exam in 2022 and become a lawyer.

She received a ton of negative comments including those telling her to stay in her lane, and those pointing out then she didn’t graduate from college.

Now, Kim is responding to the hate with a lengthy post.

Kim wrote on Instagram moments ago, “Last year I registered with the California State 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. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should ‘stay in my lane.’ I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. Everyone can take this route if you live in a state where this is allowed.”

Kim continued, “It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine – It’s never too late to follow your dreams.”

“I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck,” Kim concluded.

    I gotta give her props for at least trying to be less vapid.

    Trying or just pretending yet again? She’ll say anything to get attention even if it’s something laughable.

    Not going to argue that point just a different opinion that isn’t as pessimistic is all. She’s a scumbag but if she’s doing the work legitimately then why make this an issue? Of all the terrible things this family do to Stockholm Syndrome the American public why are we wasting time on the one redeeming thing they’ve accomplished.

    Does she even yet have a bachelor’s degree? I doubt she’s do the work it requires. It has yet to be accomplished. I don’t doubt it never will be.
