Does the Kardashian-Jenner Clan Support Kim Kardashian’s Dream to Be a Lawyer?
Kim Kardashian has made such a name for her herself, in her own right, and with her own fortune, that we often forget why the Kardashian clan was so rich in the first place. Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, famously defended OJ Simpson in his 1995 murder trial.
When you look it from that angle, it’s not all that surprising that Kim has announced she is studying to become a lawyer herself. With the grueling schedule of apprenticeship and studying that Kim will have to do to make her dream a reality, the big question is, does the rest of the Kardashian clan support her?
Kim Kardashian’s father discouraged her from becoming a lawyer
Robert passed away in 2003, but in a recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashian’s, Kim explained how her father had discouraged her from studying law. “I’ve always been really fascinated by crime, true crime, the law,” Kim said. “I told my dad years ago that I was really into criminal justice and he was like, ‘This will stress you out so much. You do not really want to take this on.'” We think he might have changed his mind, though, if he was around today to see Kim’s dedication.
Robert Shapiro, a top Los Angeles attorney who worked with Kim’s father on the OJ trial, said of Kim’s plans: “Once she passes the bar, she’ll always have a job at my law firm.” He continued: “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. I think she’ll be sensational.” If Kim’s father were here to hear his college’s words, we think he would have been really proud.
Kris Jenner is ‘super proud’ of her daughter
While Kim explained to her mother about the case of Alice Johnson, the first time, non-violent drug offender who she helped gain clemency, Kris Jenner expressed that she was ‘super proud’ of Kim. Kris said: “You really do take all of this really seriously and I think that they’re lucky that you listen.”
How does Kanye West feel about Kim Kardashian becoming a lawyer?
In a sweet pep talk, featured on an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashian’s, Kanye West gave Kim some excellent advice on managing her schedule and tells her he knows she can do it. After Kim expresses her stress from a 14 hour day, Kanye replies: “I think you could get in control of your schedule. You just gotta like, sit back and analyze. Like, what are your distractions?”
At the end of the conversation, Kanye expresses that he feels, “…the universe really wants this to happen,” and then he jokes, “My wife a lawyer now! Bet you I get out of this contract.” Kim laughs at his joke but seems to really take his words to heart. She later expresses how much it means to her to have Kanye’s support.
Kourtney Kardashian is proud of Kim
When Kim posted to Instagram about her plans to study law, her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, commented on the post, writing, “I couldn’t be more proud of you, sister.” Aww, sweet.
Kourtney also commented on Kim’s plans during a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres. “There’s a- everything’s a liability,” Kourtney replied when asked by DeGeneres what things were like now that Kim’s studying law. “Like everything she’ll mention and she’ll be like, ‘If this person’s on your property-‘ like she just, she knows all these laws now…”
What does Brody Jenner think of Kim Kardashian becoming a lawyer?
TMZ caught up with Kim’s former step-brother, Brody Jenner, and asked what he thought of Kim’s plans. He answered: “Kim is a very smart woman. I think she’ll be a great lawyer. I think Kim’s just one of those people that she can pretty much do anything. She’s incredibly bright, smart.”

Kim has a lot on her plate right now, but it’s easy to see that she’s going to make a great lawyer.
