Is Kim Kardashian really going to law school?
As controversial as she may be, you can't deny that Kim Kardashian has done a lot with her life. At 37, she's a CEO of a multi-million dollar beauty line, has one of the largest social media followings in the world, and has three adorable kids and a doting husband (well, as doting as you can imagine Kanye West to be).
But on top of that, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian's star has made the effort to support causes bigger than the somewhat materialistic world of social media and makeup. She's donated a lot of money to disaster relief funds, is a regular volunteer at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and, as of late, has decided to put pressure on American lawmakers in regards to reforming the nation’s prison systems.
Kim's been in-and-out of the White House to talk about prison reform, and it's recently been announced by her husband that her work in that area has inspired her to go to law school. But is that really the case?
Kanye, someone who is often difficult to read, told Extra TV that Kim "is in law school now," when he was asked about his wife's recent efforts in reforming the prison laws. "It’s extremely serious to us," he added.
But while that last part may be true, it's been confirmed that Kim is not actually going to be picking up the books, and following the footsteps of her father and entering the world of law. The late Robert Kardashian, as you might already know, represented OJ Simpson in that now infamous trial.
Following Kanye's remarks, a representative for Kim told InStyle that she is not in law school, prompting Extra to update their story as such: "[Kim] not in law school, but is so entrenched in the legal system with her activism that it is like going to law school."
While it doesn't appear that Kim is attending Harvard or the likes, it actually wouldn't be surprising to hear that she's interested in getting a law degree. I mean, once you see past the overly dramatic family rifts and selfie-driven antics, you'll see that Kimmy K is actually a very intelligent woman.
And with her recent visits to the White House – her first meeting with President Trump resulted in the release of a grandmother who was given a life sentence for a first-time drug offence – it's clear that she really is passionate about this particular corner of the law.
Her successful meetings with the President might even make it more likely that she'd be accepted into law school, if she applied. Most law institutions want you to have a bachelor's degree - which Kim doesn't have - but still, even without a degree she was able to pardon one prisoner, and recently met with other White House members to discuss the clemency of another.
Law school certainly isn't off the cards for Kim, with her telling Wonderland in 2016 that "If things slow down and I had time, I really wanna go to law school," adding that it's "something I can do in my older age."
Another time, she told her followers on Snapchat that her attorney Mike Kump gave her some really positive feedback: "You’ve got the perfect instincts, you’ve got great judgment, and you know how to present your position in the most articulate manner and convince people of your point of view."
While she's definitely not in law school now, things still look promising for Kim.
