Kim Kardashian has revealed she is studying to become a lawyer and plans on taking her bar exam in 2022.

The reality star previously met with Donald Trump to fight for the pardon of 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, who was given a life sentence for a first-time drug offence.
Kardashian, 38, has since told how she has undertaken a four-year apprenticeship, which she began last year, at a San Francisco law firm in order to get in her 18 hours a week of exam preparation.

Speaking to Vogue, Kardashian admitted she had to “think long and hard” about the move and eventually decided to go ahead with it after seeing a “really good result” with Johnson, who was granted clemency last June.
She explained: “I never in a million years thought we would get to the point off getting laws passed. That was really a turning point for me.”
Kardashian said she felt a desire to pursue the career after she felt out of her depth during the case.
She added: “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. It’s never one person who gets things done, it’s always a collective of people.
“I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. 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.”
Whilst the recent case of Johnson sparked a source of inspiration for Kardashian, she told the publication how she has always been interested in law as a result of her late father Robert Kardashian, who was an attorney.

Speaking about her sister’s new venture, Kourtney told how the move makes sense for Kim.
She said: “It’s because she seems to have all the answers or something. Like she just kind of knows.
“Khloe and I can be a little argumentative with my mom but Kim knows what she needs to say so that my mother can hear it and she can get her point across.”
Kardashian will take her “baby bar” exam and if she passes she will be given the go-ahead to continue with a further three years of studying.
“First year of law school, you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts,” she told the magazine. “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. The concepts I grasp in two seconds.”
