Actress Katie Holmes is reportedly considering earning a Juris Doctor.
Various sources state that actress Katie Holmes may soon undergo a career change, as the former "Dawson's Creek" star is reportedly thinking about enrolling in law school to earn a Juris Doctor. Holmes' friends allegedly told the National Enquirer that she is simply tired of acting and wants to be a better role model to her 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
If Holmes decides to pursue a legal degree, she will be following in her father's footsteps. The Daily Mail reports that Martin Holmes is a Toledo-based attorney who practices in areas such as personal injury, business litigation, probate and matrimonial law. In fact, the 67-year-old attorney is said to have helped his daughter through her divorce from fellow actor Tom Cruise.
Still, this is not the first time the actress has considered advancing her education. In the 1990s, Holmes applied to New York's Columbia University. Once she was accepted, however, she deferred her enrollment to star in the hit show "Dawson's Creek." After the show became an overnight sensation, she gave up on the idea of going to college, at least temporarily.
