What’s This? Rob Kardashian Is Going to Law School?
Rob Kardashian? Law school? It’s happening!
That’s right, Bettys: The sole male of the Kardashian empire, 25-year-old Rob, is leaving the family business and heading for something a little more… somber? Noble? Whatever it is, it’s certainly more impressive than bringing home a paycheck by allowing cameras into every aspect of what should be your private life. According to his Twitter feed, Rob Kardashian is going to law school!
The University of Southern California makes a lot of sense; in 2009, Rob graduated from the USC’s Marshall School of Business with what I’m assuming is a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (and I say “assuming” because it’s the only undergraduate degree offered at the primarily graduate-level institution). He isn’t the only Kardashian to go to college—Kourtney did, too—but he’s the only one to have majored in something so… ambitious, and at such a prestigious school, at that. Good for him for continuing his education and going for the graduate degree.
Does the whole “lawyer” thing surprise you? I’ll admit that it took me by surprise for a moment… but only for a moment. Between the exploits of all the Kardashian women, it’s easy to forget that their father, Robert Kardashian, was a big-time lawyer. I was still a kid at the time of the O. J. Simpson murder trial, but I do still remember that the 1995 case was the first time I heard the Kardashian name: Robert was O. J.’s defense lawyer. Perhaps it’s not so bizarre for Rob to follow in his father’s footsteps, after all.
In any event, it looks like we’ll be waiting a little longer before that sock line of his; but we’re okay with that. Law school is much more interesting than yet another Kardashian-designed clothing venture.
Look out, USC Gould School of Law; here comes Rob!
