Jill Duggar Instagram

Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, is currently in law school. The former Counting On star is attending The School of Law at the University of Arkansas. He’s currently juggling a few different roles. He’s a dad of two, a husband, and a student. Plus, at one point, he was delivering food via GrubHub.

Back in March, a fan asked Jill about her husband’s law school experience. They also wanted to know about his future plans. Jill responded, saying, “He’s in full swing with exams, briefs, oral arguments, and summer job applications! He’s hoping to practice some kind of public interest law (voice for the voiceless),”

Via social media, both Jill and Derick have shared updates about his education. Most recently, she was telling fans that he was studying for final exams.


There has been some conflict between the Duggar family and Derick, especially concerning TLC. Jill and Derick are no longer a part of TLC’s Counting On, but Derick may have hinted that they will be returning. Amidst the drama, Derick said that TLC “better lawyer up.” He added that “a storm” is coming. Who knows if he will use his law school experience to help with all of that?

The next photos include the “David and Goliath play and wrestling” that Jill mentioned in her caption. The boys are playing with their dad. Jill also shares that they’re making popcorn. She didn’t share what movie they watched in her post, but she shared about it on her story. She included a picture of their laptop, where they watch movies because they don’t have a TV. Then, she wrote, “Watching my favorite Christmas movie The Nativity Story“.


In response to her post, Duggar fans are congratulating Derick on the semester. They look forward to more updates about his education and hope that his upcoming semesters go well. Some fans sympathized with Jill over how busy Derick has been. Some fans’ spouses have gone to law school as well.
