Rob Kardashian heading to law school

Reality TV star Rob Kardashian is following in his late father's footsteps and heading to law school.

Kim Kardashian's younger brother has been accepted into the University of Southern California and he can't wait to hit the books when classes begin this autumn.

In a Twitter.com post on Monday, the 25 year old writes, "Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can't wait! School just never ends for me! UniversityofSouthernCal".

The Kardashian clan's dad, Robert Kardashian, famously defended O.J. Simpson in his 1995 murder trial, which led to a controversial acquittal.

He died of cancer in 2003, aged 59.

Kardashian, who is reportedly dating R&B star Rita Ora, won't be the only celebrity enrolling at USC this autumn - iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove will also be studying there.
