Our favorite reality TV personality, Kim Kardashian, will be trading in selfies for statutes when she takes the bar exam in 2021--and she has a message for anyone giving her hate for the new field she is choosing to pursue.


"Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law," Kardashian wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. "For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly."

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 ✨⚖️

She continued on with a message for her haters, saying:


"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...I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals."


She also spoke on how the time she chose to dedicate to studying law took away from her already-limited time with her family. "For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not," Kim wrote. "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."


Kim makes a point that everyone should work into their lives--follow your dreams, and don't let hateful comments get in your way.
