Business mogul, TV star, part of an ‘American dynasty of incredible wealth and influence.’ But Kardashian’s wants to be a criminal-justice lawyer, suggesting that it’s not just about the beauty but also the brains!

Kardashian revealed her aspirations in a new interview for the May feature of Vogue. It’s been reported that Kim Kardashian West has had a interest in law for a while. She’s has taken an active interest in criminal justice over the past year - and now she’s taking the next step! 

In her interview with Vogue, Kardashian revealed that she’s decided to embark on a four-year apprenticeship program with a law firm in San Francisco, with the goal of taking the bar examinations in 2022. However despite what’s normally expected in terms of the requisite qualifications for becoming a lawyer. Kim Kardashians doesn’t actually have a law degree. But does the lack of a formal legal qualification pose a problem for American icon? Well apparently not, in several states - including California, a person can take the bar through a process called “reading the law,” in which they apprentice under the supervision of a practicing attorney.

‘If she were to pass the bar, it would be the most surprising rebranding since @Barbie got woke,’ says at Van Jones, CNN commentator. Yet many have thought that Kim wouldn’t achieve what she has thus far. “I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me, because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what’s important to me after they’ve met me,” Kardashian says.

As per her interview, Kardashian explained that. “I had to think long and hard about this” she told the magazine. Pointing to some of the social justice work she had been involved in earlier this year, she reminisced that “the White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more. I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case,” she continued. “I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

“I just felt like the system could be so different…and if I knew more, I could do more.” - Kardashian

The beauty icon is already working on it and commenting on her legal studies so far Kardashian explained to Vogue: "First year of law school you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts. To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me. The reading is what really gets me. It’s so time-consuming [don’t we know it!] The concepts I grasp in two seconds."

Well Kimmy, law school can be tough, having gone through the process myself and having taken hundreds of law students through the process as a law lecturer. We’re genuinely impressed that Kim is taking her interest in advocacy to the next level, and using her influence to help effect change.

We wish Kim the best of luck with her new career aspirations!
