Kim Kardashian shocked many when she announced her plans to further her interests in criminal justice reform by becoming a lawyer. Although some were pleasantly surprised by her determination, others doubted that the reality star's intentions were genuine. Kim K took to social media to fire back at critics while also trying to inspire others to achieve their dreams. 

Kim posted a picture to her Instagram where she and two associates appear to be studying. In the caption, Kardashian shared the progress she's made on her journey to the bar exam.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. 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 ✨

"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," Kardashian continued. "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.

The post follows Vogue's recent cover story where Kardashian revealed that she wanted to follow in her father's footsteps. She has been accused of biting off more than she can chew with these aspirations and told to enjoy the success she has.  Kardashian didn't just focus on the haters and thanked the people who've supported her ambitions. 

"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," Kardashian wrote. "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.
