Kim Kardashian-West is the cover star for the May issue of Vogue and details that she has ambitions to take the bar exam and become a lawyer in 2022.
The reality star, entrepreneur and wife of Kanye West comes from a legal family: her father, Robert Kardashian Sr., was famous in the 1990s for representing O.J. Simpson in a legendary case that harnessed the attention of America. A recent advocate for criminal justice reform, Kim is seeking to continue the family lineage of law.
Within the story, Kim detailed that she is currently in a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco-based law firm that is allowing her to study the inner workings of law in efforts to continue to a fact criminal justice.
In 2018, Kardashian was in headlines for her work in helping Alice Marie Johnson to become a free woman after a series of meetings with President Donald Trump. At the time, Kardashian spoke out about wanting to extend her reach beyond Johnson.
Speaking with Vogue she detailed her meetings with Trump came with the assistance of attorneys, which she valued the assistance.
“I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role,” Kardashian said.
Assisting with getting Johnson released from prison led to Kardashian wanting to learn more and continue the work of criminal justice reform, citing that she needed to learn more.
The journey for Kardashian has already led her to law school and getting perfect scores on her first test, which her husband, Kanye radiates “She’s always had it in her.”
Recently, Kim Kardashian has assisted Matthew Charles, a man who was recently released for prison by paying for his first five years of freedom. Charles was freed from prison on January 3 under the First Step Act.
