Kim Kardashian wants to become a lawyer—and the internet is torn

People who say Kim Kardashian West has no talent will soon have to find a new reason to hate, because the reality star just announced that she’s studying to become a criminal justice lawyer. Bible!

In California, you can opt out of law school and instead do a four-year apprenticeship with a lawyer or judge before taking the bar exam. Kim told Vogue that she is studying 18 hours a week for the bar, which she plans to take in 2022.

“The reading is what really gets me. It’s so time-consuming,” Kardashian said. “The concepts I grasp in two seconds.”

The internet jury cannot agree on how to feel about the news.

Some find the whole thing hilarious.

Others are being supportive of Kim and her decision to become a lawyer.

“How many of the people mocking this have gotten a person freed from an unjust prison sentence, like Kim Kardashian did?” Vox reporter German Lopez asked on Twitter.

Kardashian has been vocal about her passion for criminal justice reform in the past, from publicly lauding a governor’s decision to halt the execution of hundreds on death row to successfully convincing President Donald Trump to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson. Johnson was serving a life sentence for a non-violent, drug-related offense.

Kardashian said it was fighting for Johnson’s freedom that inspired her to take the next steps of becoming a lawyer.

“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,’” Kardashian told Vogue. “I need to know more.”
