Since we learned that Kim Kardashian is trying to become a lawyer – first off an off-the-cuff statement from Kanye and later from Kardashian himself in one Interview – There was a healthy amount of skepticism.
There are still states that allow apprenticeships? Yes. Can a college dropout ever be a lawyer? It turns out they can graduate in California when they get 60 credits. Is there any way to pass a bar exam so successfully that it stumbled upon the dean of Stanford Law School? Well, that remains to be seen.
Criticism kept coming:
The reality star never graduated from college, but in California it's legal to study the law privately. Although Kim had a fair share of critics because she had studied many lawyers ̵1; many compared her in Legal Blonde to Elle Woods, Kim said that was not the case.
Elle Woods went to Harvard.
All these questions and Snarky approaches drove Kardashian to post an Instagram photo of himself. I mean, it's not a selfie sense, someone stood in the room taking a picture of her looking at a book in a completely artificial way.
Sure. Very natural. Honestly, I never even doubted that she had worked hard on her studies, but productions like this do not work wonders for her credibility.
Perhaps more important is that the picture answers the question that many had asked: who are the lawyers? Take Kardashian under her wing? As one might suspect, since Kardashian is pursuing the law based on criminal law reform, these lawyers are deeply involved in the movement. On the left side of the picture we see Erin Haney, director of national politics, and Jessica Jackson, national director and co-founder of the Cut50 initiative to end mass arrests.
Kardashian used her social media to create more details I explain that she passes the baby bar and explains that the work puts a strain on her family time:
I work all day, putting my kids to bed and spending mine Nights to study. I changed my number last year and disconnected because of all my commitment to following a dream – it's never too late to follow your dreams.
Put the definition of "work" on the page, and their point of view appeals to any non-traditional student trying to get through the chaotic matters of legal education while – ugh – coming along with his family.
I've seen some comments from people who say it's my privilege or money that brought me here. But that's not the case, "she wrote. "The State Bar does not care who you are.
The State Bar may not matter, but it's absolutely your privilege and your money that has brought you here." The law school nursery school student may not hand over his children to nannies and staff during their studies. They must not put their "work" on ice so they can work for years in a law firm. And that's fine, just admit it. Do not try to sell this as a kind of bullshit lifestyle promotion fantasy that any 38-year-old mother of three without a college education can get into the bar in an instant.
Overcoming these blind spots and recognizing their position relative to the rest of the world will be a crucial step to mature as advocates. It is clearly not there yet. But she still has time.
