After revealing in an interview with Vogue magazine she is studying to become a lawyer, Kim Kardashian-West updated fans with the news she “aced” her torts exam.


“Aced my test btw,” Kim shared via Twitter.

The busy mom and reality star addressed criticism to those who mocked her plans to become a lawyer, especially those who pointed out the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star never finished college and is not going to law school. California is one of four states where potential lawyers can take the bar exam without attending law school first.

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 ✨⚖️

Kim addressed the nay-sayers by revealing just how daunting the road ahead for her is, sharing, “For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not.

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.”

Kim, whose father – Robert Kardashian – famously served on OJ Simpson’s legal team, also revealed she changed her phone number last year in order to focus on her dream to become an attorney, writing on Instagram, “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.”
