Kim Kardashian is taking the law into her own hands

It’s hard to keep up with Kim Kardashian and her resume.

The reality star-turned-mogul-turned-advocate revealed her newfound legal aspirations in the cover story of Vogue’s May issue. Following a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm, Kardashian hopes to take the bar in 2022.

Kardashian’s father, Robert Kardashian, notably served as one of O.J. Simpson’s defense attorneys during Simpson’s 1994 murder trial.

Kardashian’s done her fair share of legal work. She traveled to Washington, D.C. last year to discuss prison reform with President Trump and her concerted efforts contributed to Alice Marie Johnson’s release. Johnson, then 63, had been in prison since 1996 after she was convicted on a drug charge.

“Seeing a really good result” with Johnson’s case invigorated Kardashian, as did the subsequent passing of the FIRST STEP Act, and the opportunity to leave her comfort zone.

Kardashian has since worked with CNN’s Van Jones, who also met with Trump about Johnson, and his #cut50 cofounder, attorney Jessica Jackson. (#Cut50 is “a national bipartisan effort to reduce the number of people in our prisons and jails while making our communities safer.") Alongside Jones and Jackson, Kardashian has spent months “visiting prisons, petitioning governors, and attending meetings at the White House."

Jones described Kardashian’s role as “indispensable," recalling how she assuaged Trump of his fear that “letting somebody out of prison and that person going and doing something terrible” would negatively impact his further political aspirations.

Kardashian noted The White House had asked her “to advise to help change the system of clemency.” She remembers feeling "like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

One question at the forefront of fans’ and naysayers’ minds alike is: how can Kardashian become a lawyer without a college degree?

California, where Kardashian resides, has a workaround. The Golden State is one of four in the U.S. that currently offers an alternative route to pass the bar: “'reading the law,' or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or judge.”

After her first year, in which Kardashian will have to study contracts, criminal law, and torts, the multimillionaire will be tasked with taking the “baby bar."

If she passes the exam, set for this summer, Kardashian will be able to move onto another three years of study.
