Kim Kardashian, Attorney at Law?

Kim Kardishian announced in Vogue’s May issue that, after 12 years of starring on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its spinoffs she has a new ambition: to become a lawyer.

Kardashian says she was inspired after she successfully convinced Donald Trump to commute the prison sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother serving life in prison without parole for a drug crime.

Says Kardashian, “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency,” she said, “and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more.”

Because Kardashian did not finish college, she cannot attend law school to become a lawyer. But there is another path available to aspiring California attorneys: apprenticeship. Over a period of four years Kardashian will be required to:

Study at least 18 hours a week for 48 weeks to acquire credit for one year of legal study. She must complete at least four years of legal study at a law office or judge’s chambers before she can take the California Bar exam.

Shadow mentor lawyers for four years;

Submit reports every six months summarizing her studies;

After she has completed one year of legal education, she must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination (FYLSX), also known as the “Baby Bar.” The exam covers contracts, criminal law, and torts.

Pass the California bar exam, probably the most difficult in the nation.

Apply for Determination of Moral Character and pass a criminal background check. Things that could derail a moral character examination include prior felonies. Remember…it’s not against the law to make a sex tape between two consenting adults!

Pass the Multi-state Professional Responsibility Exam, which tests her understanding of attorney ethics and professional conduct.

Other states where you can become a licensed attorney without attending any law school include Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. Before you scoff, remember that Abraham Lincoln, John Adams, and John Marshall (the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court) didn’t go to law school, either.  In fact, for most of American history, all aspiring lawyers “read law” rather than attended law school.

What do you think? Will Kim Kardashian become a lawyer or will she become distracted by other opportunities?

    There is a severe problem with well check laws and the corruption that local authorities participate in and cover up, it s apalling. I was trying to contact legislative branches and when I did get a return letter from the governor who forwarded my letter to the state attorney I had several near fatal accidents and then was set up and framed for something. Please help those being victimized in their own locked homes while Asleep in their own beds. Poorly trained or officers with psychological issues need not participate in well checks. There needs to be uniform training across the country criteria must be strictly followed. American citizens civil rights are being violated and in their own lock homes while in their own beds!

    I am seeking help for a friend who’s was wrongly convicted of rape, a black man. I’m stepping out on faith and believe that this young man is innocent of this conviction. He’s from Arkansas and so I tend to believe something is messed up with this case. I’m leaving my email, please contact me for details Sheacop@icloud.com. You are on to something here, this could be your calling, I have followed you on two cases and you did a awesome job. Please contact me. Cynthia Coplin

    I need a lawyer to help me. I live in Atlanta and no one will take my case because of who the Company is. I have 11 injuries and all happen at work.
