The Duggar family has been around for years – and although many of us first remember them from TLC's 19 children and counters, they have since moved on to their recent biographical show, Trust. We have had a chance to see that many of the 19 Duggar children go from teenagers to adult adults. And many have their own court, married and started small families of their own. Today fans are especially interested in what Jill Duggar is up to. She met her husband, Derick Dillard, through the Patriarch of the Duggar family, Jim Bob – and although the two seem happily married, Derick and Jill are no longer associated with TLC because of Derick's controversial social media.
He must not be on Trust, But derick and jill have both made it known that derick is now in law school. Here are all the details.
Derick attends the University of Arkansas for law school
When Derick and Jill announced on social media that Derick attended law school, fans couldn't believe it. But in connection with weekly notes it is absolutely true. The publication notes a Facebook page that is notorious anti-Duggar family, called Duggar Family News: Life is not all Pickles and Hairspray, looked into the campus library of the University of Arkansas School of Law and found Derick. As the admin for Facebook page wrote, "Derick is amazing did be accepted to the law school. "
This didn't come as much of a shock to those who already followed Jill and Derick on social media. Fans noted Derick began following the American Law Institute and Law School Admission Council on Twitter. This clued everyone in this law school may have been on its radar for some time now.
The school message came after he was kicked off Trust
The timing of Derick's choice to pursue a law degree is particularly interesting to viewers Trust. Fans noted Jill and Derick were not part of the show 7, which started in February 2018. As to why they were removed, it all has to do with Derick's controversial social media. In Touch Weekly, we remembered Derick writing transphobic tweets about TLC star Jazz Jennings, and he also spewed other homophobic content about Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent from Nate & Jeremiah by Design. TLC then said they no longer wanted to connect with Derick – though Derick claims it was his family's own decision to leave the network behind.
The following August, Jill and Derick announced their plans for Derick's schooling through a post on their blog. In Touch Weekly it is also noted that Derick had a hard time getting permanent work after his firing Trust. Perhaps the couple hoped a future in the law would be the best way to maintain financial stability in the coming years.
Fans think Jim Bob Duggar is on the bill
With Jill and Derick off the show and almost unemployed, fans have wondered how they manage to stay afloat and pay for the law school. The Hollywood Gossip notes the Duggar Family News blog said that Derick's school of choice should cost the family about $ 16,000 a year. The blog said Jim Bob, Jill's father, was likely to pay for schooling. Or the post mentioned that Derick could have "got a conservative evangelical group paying off in the hope that if Derick actually becomes a lawyer, he will be forced to work for their causes" – but it seems that Jim Bob's help is more likely.
Unfortunately, fans of Duggars do not seem to have much hope for Derick's future law. In contact with weekly notes a person posted in response to the news, "he too will not be able to handle it. I went and graduated. You need a thick skin and the ability to entertain and argue for different ideas." And another user wrote, "No one will listen to him, and it will make him even more."
