Kim Kardashian – Robert Shapiro, Who Worked Alongside Her Dad On O.J. Simpson Trial, Offers Her A Future Job At His Law Firm
Kim Kardashian continues to prove her naysayers wrong, as she pushes forward on her quest to become a lawyer. The beauty mogul and reality star is not only putting in the hard work required to pass the bar exam, she’s also received a future job offer from one of her father’s past legal colleagues—attorney Robert Shapiro.
It was just last week when one of the most famous women in the world, Kim Kardashian, sent shockwaves through the Internet when she revealed that she is currently studying to be a lawyer. The admission was made in her recent Vogue cover story, her first solo slot on the American version of the iconic fashion magazine, and many didn’t take it seriously.
Well, Kardashian is no stranger to doing what the general public thinks she can’t (or shouldn’t) do. She is very serious about going through the process to become a lawyer and even posted an in-depth explanation on Instagram addressing those who think her privilege is the only reason she’s gotten this far on her journey to become a lawyer.
In the post she wrote:
“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. Everyone can take this route if you live in a state where this is allowed. 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”
Now, she’s gotten a future job offer from none other than acclaimed attorney Robert Shapiro, who you’ll remember worked alongside Kardashian’s dad Robert Kardashian on the O.J. Simpson trial back in 1994.
In a recent interview, Shapiro spoke very highly of Kardashian’s skills to become a lawyer, even throwing a job offer her way:
“Once she passes the bar, she’ll always have a job at my law firm. I think she’ll be a sensational lawyer. Look what she did with the President of the United States. She got somebody right out of jail.”
He continued to add:
“It’s going to be a very difficult and long process for her doing it the way she’s doing it, I wish her the best of luck.”
Kardashian also recently took her first Tort’s exam and “aced” it. She is currently doing an apprenticeship at a law office in San Francisco and hopes to take the bar exam in 2020.
