Reality TV star Kim Kardashian may just be closer to becoming a lawyer than you think, according to reports that say she already has been offered a job with one of Los Angeles’ top attorneys, Robert Shapiro.

According to TMZ, the famed lawyer who has represented celebrities such as OJ Simpson, Eva Longoria and Johnny Carson, said: “Once she passes the bar, she'll always have a job at my law firm. I think she’ll be a sensational lawyer”.

Shapiro was part of the Dream Team of lawyers, along with Kardashian’s father Robert Kardashian, who defended Simpson in 1995.

Shapiro was all praise for his former law partner’s daughter as he said: “Look what she did with the President of the United States. She got somebody right out of jail. I think she'll be sensational".

The mother of three had announced earlier that she would not be attending law school but instead, enrol in a “reading the law” programme – a path that Shapiro said was going to be “difficult and long”.

Last week, Kardashian told Vogue that she began a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm last summer and plans to take the bar exam in 2022.

To her detractors, the makeup mogul said on Instagram that “I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals”.

She added that studying for the bar is not “the easy way out”. “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," she wrote.

"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."

Just how committed is Kardashian to her new endeavour? She has apparently changed her 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".
