While Kim Kardashian is three years into her pursuit of becoming a lawyer, CNN host Van Jones weighed in on the reality star’s future as a fellow attorney. After all, he’s had a close seat to her journey considering she has been apprenticing at his criminal justice reform non-profit, Dream Corps JUSTICE, formerly known as #cut50, under mentors Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
“She’s doing amazing,” he told Ellen DeGeneres during an interview for her May 24 show. “I think she has used her platform to help people behind bars.”
“Her dad was a lawyer and she always wanted to be a lawyer,” he explained. “Once she got a taste of what she could do using her platform, using her brain, she hasn’t let up, so I think she’s going to be an unbelievable attorney. She’s already I think one of the best advocates that we have in criminal justice.”
Now, amid her divorce from Kanye West, the star remains ever focused on achieving this career dream. “Kim’s doing great,” mom Kris Jenner assured viewers in April during an interview on Today With Hoda & Jenna. “Kim is really focusing on her legal studies. She’s trying to pass the bar and so, she does that every day.”
In April 2019, she explained the lesser-known process of becoming a lawyer without an undergraduate degree that she was embarking on in California.
