Kim Kardashian is ‘studying to become a lawyer’

Kim Kardashian has revealed she is studying to become a lawyer.

The reality TV star said she hopes to take the California bar exam in 2022.

In an interview with Vogue, she said: ‘I had to think long and hard about this.’

Kim said she has started a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco in order to get in her 18 hours a week of exam preparation.

She also played a key role in the release of Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old woman who served 21 years of a life sentence for a non-violent drug charge.

She said: ‘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. It’s never one person who gets things done.

‘It’s always a collective of people, and 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.’

California is one of four states that allows someone an alternate method to take the bar exam other than attending law school.

Kim’s interest in the law will see her follow in the footsteps of her father Robert Kardashian, who was a member of OJ Simpson’s defence team.

She said: ‘On the weekends they used our home as an office, with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro.

‘My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his OJ evidence books.

‘On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics.’
