Kim Kardashian Already Offered Job At Law Firm If She Passes Her Exams

Kim Kardashian recently revealed she's training to become a lawyer, and it seems like she's already proving her worth in the industry.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has a goal to take the bar in 2022 and is currently studying a four year-long apprenticeship at a law firm in San Francisco.

And Robert Shapiro, who defended O.J. Simpson alongside Kim's late father Robert Kardashian, says that if and when she passes the bar she will always have a job at his law firm.

Shapiro was impressed with Kim's tireless work to free Alice Marie Johnson from jail, with the reality star meeting with the US President, Donald Trump, to make this happen.

Speaking to TMZ, Shapiro said: "Kim's already done incredible work with no experience, so the sky's the limit now that she's seriously practicing law.

"Once she passes the bar, she'll always have a job at my law firm. I think she'll be a sensational lawyer. Look what she did with the President of the United States. She got somebody right out of jail.

"I think she'll be sensational. It's gonna be a very difficult and long process for her, doing it the way she's doing it. I wish her the best of luck."

He added: "She told me a year ago she was planning on doing this, so she's serious about it and I hope she is successful. I only know one other person who was able to pass the bar in the way she's doing it without going to law school.

"I give anybody credit who wants to further their education [and] try to do something they've never done and be challenged, and I hope she's successful."

Kim opened up on where her career was headed in an interview with Vogue magazine, and was later forced to defend the move on Instagram.

She wrote: "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.

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. This option is available to anyone who's state allows it. 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 :sparkles:⚖️
