Former “Real Housewives of New York” star Alex McCord’s husband Simon van Kempen has graduated law school.
Alex posted video of Simon during his graduation ceremony. She wrote “Breaking news! Simon van Kempen just graduated from law school!!!!!!!!”
Simon posted about the accomplishment, “After 4.5 years of full time study doing first an Associate Degree in Law, so I could practice as a Licensed Conveyancer, and then,yesterday, graduating with a Bachelor of Laws, I can get back on the treadmill! While studying has been bloody hard, coinciding with starting a new office of my brother's law firm, parenting two teenage boys, and of course being Alex's partner in life, I have to thank Alex, Francois & Johan for putting up with with me dealing with everything law school throws at you. Every assignment due date and exam period, during each semester has seen my stress levels balloon and I would not have walked the graduating line yesterday but for my boys and above all Alex's support.”
He added, “Of course Alex has also had her own stressful full time studies since we arrived in Australia completing her Psychology degree (with 1st class honours) and then, yesterday, submitting her final paper for her Masters degree. I wish I now could take a break from studying but tomorrow I fly to Sydney to commence the next stage of my law studies, which in Australia entails completing a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) which is required to practice as a solicitor. I aim to complete that by early July 2020 and then that treadmill beckons as I strive to fit back into my red pleather pants! ;-)”
