Kim Kardashian Is Real Serious About This Lawyering Thing…

Kim Kardashian has come a long way, but the beauty mogul isn’t resting on her laurels, she’s looking to go even further.

The narrative surrounding KK has changed many times over the last decade. From the girl who was a superstar in a video with her ex, to reality TV royalty, Kim is now a married mom of 3 (almost four), who is a beauty aficionado with an enviable brand worth millions. It’s not necessarily rags to riches, but it is an unlikely tale. And it looks like the tale will continue in a most surprising way.

Jimmie revealed her latest endeavor in a multi-day interview with Vogue. The mag states, “And last summer, [Kim] made the unlikely decision—one she knew would be met with an eye roll for the ages—to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, with the goal of taking the bar in 2022.” That’s right folks, Kardashian wants to be a licensed lawyer.

“I had to think long and hard about this,” she says, gleefully devouring chile con queso with chips now that her Vogue shoot is over. What inspired her to embark on something so overwhelmingly difficult and time-consuming—even as she also runs a multimillion-dollar beauty enterprise—was the combination of “seeing a really good result” with Alice Marie Johnson and feeling out of her depth. “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency,” she says, “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. 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.”

Vogue, clearly surprised by the revelation, sought out reactions from Kim family:

“When I ask Kris Jenner if she was surprised by this sudden shift in her daughter’s life, she laughs and says, ‘I did not see this one coming. What didn’t surprise me was the way she embraced Miss Alice and how she was so hopeful for that outcome. When you find something that you’re that passionate about, it’s not difficult; you don’t have to think about it—it just happens.'”

“To Kim’s sisters, it all makes a certain kind of sense. Both Kourtney and Khloé point out that when Kim was young, she was obsessed with court TV shows, as well as true-crime programming. Kim was also close to her father, Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003 and who famously was a member of O. J. Simpson’s defense team. ‘On the weekends they used our home as an office, with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro,’ Kim says. ‘My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his O.J. evidence books. On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics.'”

It’s well-known that Kardashian hasn’t completed a college education, but as the Vogue article points out, “four U.S. states, including California, offer another path to passing the bar—what is known as “reading the law,” or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or judge.”

So, the question remains, would you let KK be your lawyer?
