She is embarking on a new career in criminal law and plans to take the California state bar exam in 2022.
And proving how serious she is about her new passion, dedicated law student Kim Kardashian was pictured with a binder tucked under her arm as she arrived at her torts exam on Wednesday.
Kim was dressed comfortably in sweats as she hopped out of her Range Rover and into a building in Los Angeles.
She made sure to wear a casual outfit so as not to distract from the matter at hand and lugged a khaki backpack which appeared to be weighed down with more books.
However, while the rest of her attire may well have matched that of any other hard-working student, there was one very obvious giveaway as to Kim’s wealth and celebrity status.
In her left hand the reality star carried a cream crocodile Hermes Birkin bag, that is estimated to be worth at least $100,000 – however depending on when and where she bought it, the bag could have cost much more.
Crocodile skin Birkin bags are traditionally known to be the most expensive – and one actually holds the record for the most expensive Hermes bag sold at auction; in 2017, a Himalayan Nilo Crocodile Birkin sold for a staggering $383,000.
The bag, which was made from an ‘almost albino’ crocodile, was of an incredibly rare finish – however Kim also owns a near identical version that is slightly smaller than the Birkin she had with her for her law exam.
Kim was likely the only person in the exam to be toting such a pricey purse – which could help many students cover a considerable portion of the costs of their college education – an it seems to have served as something of a lucky charm for her.
Later in the day, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed she passed the exam.
‘Aced my test btw,’ she wrote on Twitter along with some related emojis.On Instagram on Tuesday Kim shared a glimpse of some study notes in her binder as well as flashcards featuring handwritten legal definitions and key terms on them.
Within her notes could be seen definitions of ‘negligence’, ‘standard of care’ and ‘breach of duty.’
She captioned the images with ‘Torts Test Tomorrow’.
A tort is ‘a wrongful act or an infringement of a right (other than under contract) leading to civil legal liability.’
Torts is one of three subjects that Kardashian has been studying in her first year of law.
Kim revealed this week that she’s coming to the end of her first year of studies and will be taking the ‘baby bar’ exam in June.
She discussed her new direction in life in a Vogue interview last week, revealing that she has been studying for the 2022 state bar exam since last summer.Days later she hit back at her haters who accused her of relying on her ‘money and privilege’ to pursue her dream with a lengthy Instagram post.
She detailed the grueling study schedule she has undertaken to achieve her goal and that she disconnected from her friends and sacrificed time with her kids to spend 18 hours a week on her studies.
‘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.
She added, ‘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.Kim went on to reveal that she needed 60 credits to ‘read the law’ in an ‘in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers’ and she had 75.
‘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.
Kim admitted feeling daunted at the huge challenge she set for herself but is thankful for her support system after distancing herself from her social group to dedicate her time to her studies.
She continued, ‘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.’
Along with her message Kim posted a photo of her sat down with her two mentors Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
The reality star began a four-year long apprenticeship at a San Francisco law firm last summer.She said she was inspired to study law after successfully petitioning US President Donald Trump last year to pardon Alice Marie Johnson.
Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother, had served nearly 22 years of a life sentence for cocaine trafficking.
A week after meeting with Kardashian, President Trump pardoned Johnson in June 2018.
‘I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society,’ she told Vogue.
‘I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more,’ said the mother-of-three whose own father Robert was an attorney who helped defend OJ Simpson in his murder trial.
