Though she did attend Pierce College in Los Angeles for some time, she never graduated. One supporter said: "All the very best, Kimmy!"

"The state bar doesn't care who you are", she added. You can create your own lanes, just as I am.

Kardashian West, 38, first shared a glimpse of the stunning property where the couple is staying.

Along with her message Kim posted a photo of her sat down with her two mentors Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.

The "route" Kardashian referred to in the caption is the process of taking the bar exam without a degree. No one takes time to acknowledge them. This way of becoming a lawyer is called, "reading the law".

"It's true I did not finish college", she acknowledged. If a person decides to go this route, they are required to have an apprenticeship with a judge or law firm.

'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. "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 told her followers, "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", she explained.

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 previous 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'.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also took a moment to thank author and CNN commentator Van Jones.

"I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair".

Kim asked for luck on her next assignment: "a big torts essay due on negligence".

"I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me", she said.

'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.
