In case you missed it, just last week a glossy solo Vogue profile revealed that Kim Kardashian is becoming a lawyer. The profile revealed that last year, she began a four year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco with plans to take the bar in 2022.
Kardashian shared that her decision to study law was largely sparked by her White House advocacy for the pardon of Alice Marie Johnson, a grandma who had been jailed for nonviolent drug charges since 1996.
"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. 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."
