38-year-old lifestyle mogul, Kim Kardashian who has 134 million Instagram followers, has been interning at a California law firm since last year.
The lifestyle star said she was inspired to study law after successfully petitioning US President Donald Trump last year to pardon Alice Marie Johnson.
American television star Kim Kardashian, known for her reality shows, is studying law and hopes to pass her California bar exams by 2022, the magazine Vogue reported on Wednesday.
“I had to think long and hard about this,” she said. Kardashian West said she began a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco last summer.
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.
Since then, Kardashian has been working with lawyers and activists, including CNN commentator Van Jones, on a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal justice reform.
“It’s never one person who gets things done,” she said. “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.
Admission to law school in the United States usually requires a bachelor’s degree in any discipline. Kardashian never graduated from the college she attended, Pierce, having dropped out before she completed her course.
But some states including California do allow would-be attorneys to intern in a law firm for four years before taking the bar exam.
In the meantime, she said she is taking an interest in other cases of inmates calling for early release from prison.
