If you’ve been on planet Earth for the past few months you’ve probably heard the news. No, not about the new royal baby or about Beyonce’s “Homecoming” release on Netflix. I’m talking about the news blast you likely saw on your social media feed on or about April 10th, 2019, “Kim Kardashian is working on becoming a lawyer.” This news blast was unexpected to say the least. In fact, I ruled it out as inaccurate until seeing this news story corroborated by news media outlets more credible than my Instagram news feed.
However, the most incredible part of this news story wasn’t her plan to become a lawyer, I mean, “get it girl,” this pathway is available for whoever is willing to take on the task. What was more shocking, was the fact that she is doing this without going to law school. Yes, you heard me right. Kim Kardashian, wife of Kanye, mother to North, Saint, Chicago and now Psalm West, found a pathway to become an attorney, through which she can avoid the dreaded cold call in front of hundreds of people and extensive class lectures that go on for hours. No this isn’t a pathway reserved for the wealthy or famous. In fact this is a pathway that has existed for centuries, it’s just simply the road less travelled for reasons I will delve into below. Therefore, if you’re interested in becoming a lawyer sans law school, this article is for you.
