And she has also settled the score on people claiming it's her "money" that allowed her to enroll in the course.

Kim has opened up about her future law career further in the past...explained.
She went on to explain her plans for her own future law firm...

Earlier this month, Kim revealed she had successfully passed her first year.
But, this week, the star has revealed exactly what inspired her to take up a career in law.
Speaking to CR Fashion Book, the star revealed that raising "4 black kids" in America has played a huge part in perusing a law career.
"I'm raising four black kids in this society, and our system is so discriminatory against black and brown people," Kim said.
"I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier."
"I never knew much about the system until I started to dig in."
"And once I learned and saw how many things were wrong, I really couldn't stop."
Over the past few years, Kim admitted that her priorities have changed...she now feels a "duty" to be a role model to her 4 children.
"My evolution on this is probably some combination of growing up, getting married, having kids, and my life being so different than it was when I was starting out," she explained.
"Now, I feel like I have a duty to myself and to my children more than the public and I want to be a good role model for my kids."
