American TV star Kim Kardashian, known for her reality shows and marriage to hip-hop artist Kanye West, is studying law and would like to pass her California law oriented exams by 2022, the magazine Vogue reported on Wednesday.
The 38-year-old lifestyle mogul, who has 134 million Instagram devotees, has been interning at a California law firm since a year ago. She said she was inspired to study law after successfully petitioning US President Donald Trump last year to pardon Alice Marie Johnson.
Johnson, a 63-year-old great grandma, had served almost 22 years of a lifelong incarceration for cocaine trafficking.
Seven days in the wake of meeting with Kardashian, Mr Trump - likewise a previous reality television star - pardoned Johnson in June 2018.
The star of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" said she had been invited on a different occasion to the White House to participate in a working group on pardons and clemency.
"I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society," she told Vogue.
"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," said the mother-of-three whose claim father Robert was a lawyer who helped OJ Simpson in his murder trial.
Admission to law school in the United States more often than not requires a bachelor's degree in any discipline. Kardashian never moved on from the college she attended, Pierce, having dropped out before she finished her course.
In any case, a few states including California do permit would-be lawyers to understudy in a law firm for a long time before taking the bar exam.
Kardashian has been apprenticing at a San Francisco law office since a year ago and would like to pass her exams by 2022.
In the meantime, she said she is taking an interest in other cases of inmates calling for early release from prison.
