On Wednesday, Kim Kardashian revealed to Vogue Magazine she plans to take the bar exam in 2022. Instead of going to law school, Kardashian is taking the apprenticeship route. After news spread of the reality star’s plans, many took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Many responses were funny:
Kim Kardashian West is studying to be a lawyer. Oh. Excuse me, I meant Kim Kardashian Wesquire.

The consensus seems to be that if she can pass the notoriously hard California bar exam, she deserves to be a lawyer:

How many of the people mocking this have gotten a person freed from an unjust prison sentence, like Kim Kardashian did? https://t.co/J4cYm7Zw2z

I can't say I'm a fan of hers, but if she wants to do it, why not? I think it's good to challenge yourself and try new things.
BTW, California allows you to take the bar exam without going to law school, but you do need to apprentice with an attorney beforehand. https://t.co/5dgBom4Mtu

i saw it an hour ago.
if kim kardashian can pass the bar exam in *california*….
she deserves to be a lawyer.
ppl can "read the law" in va, too.
last i checked, those pass rates weren't exactly encouraging.
yo, if she can pass it, more power to her. https://t.co/5Uy32ldxvj

And FWIW, I think it's a shame that so few states retain an apprenticeship path to being licensed by the bar. If you can pass a bar exam, you should be able to practice, I don't care if your day job is selling hot dogs out of a street-cart.
