Kim Kardashian has more than just hot looks, she’s now studying law – VIDEO

American reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has surprised her fans after revealing that she is now studying to become a lawyer.

In a tell-it-all interview with lifestyle magazine Vogue, the mother of three said that she had begun a four-year law apprentice with an aim of taking the bar in the year 2022.

She says her desire to become a lawyer was ignited last year after playing a key role on the release of 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson who was serving a life sentence in prison without parole for a first time drug offense.

The woman had been in custody at a prison in Alabama since 1996.

BUSY CAREER

Kim admits that it was not an easy decision for her to make due to her busy career as a reality TV star and running a multimillion dollar cosmetic brand, but in the end she chose to study law.

However, a phone call from the White House asking her to advise to help change the system of clemency changed her mind.

“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,” says Ms Kardashian.

‘FIGHT FOR PEOPLE’

She adds: “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. 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.”

If she succeeds and actually gets admitted by the bar she would be following in the footsteps of her father Robert Kardashian who was a defence attorney.
