Rob Kardashian Headed To Law School: Reality Star Enrolls At University Of Southern California (UPDATED)

Posted: Updated:

All of that teasing from his sisters about not having a job must have finally gotten to Rob Kardashian.

The 25-year-old reality star announced on Twitter on Aug 6 that he's headed to law school this fall:

"Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can't wait! School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal #Trojans #FightOn"

The "Dancing With the Stars" alum will follow in the footsteps of his late father, Robert Kardashian, when he starts his first semester at USC's Gould Law School this fall. The elder Kardashian gained notoriety for being part of the legal team that defended O.J. Simpson during his trial in the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson.

Education hasn't been a big priority for the Kardashian family, as Rob is only the second Kardashian kid to earn a college degree. In 2009, he graduated from USC's Marshall School of Business, and his older sister Kourtney graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson in 2002, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts with a minor in Spanish.

College didn't interest Kim or Khloe and their stepdad Bruce Jenner has even said that he's not sure if his own daughters, Kendall and Kylie, will go to college.

"If they want to go to college, certainly, I think it's a good idea," Jenner told Us Weekly in January. "But I'm not the advocate of, 'You've got to go to college.' I think by the time they graduate from high school, they will probably be in a position to go right to working."

UPDATE: There seems to be some confusion as to whether Rob Kardashian really will be attending USC's law school. After multiple publications reported on Rob's academic plans, a Twitter account which appears to belong to USC's Gould School of Law, announced that the reality star will not be attending their institution:

It appears that the school is vehemently denying Rob's claims, but when the legal blog Above The Law reached out to USC Gould School of Law, they were told, "the law school has no statement regarding Mr. Kardashian’s Twitter comments.”

It's still unclear if Rob will actually be attending law school this fall, but even if he does attend we hope he doesn't give up on his sock line.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner may not pursue higher education, but plenty of celebrities have. How well do you know Hollywood's college grads? You might be surprised by their unlikely academic pursuits.
