Kim Kardashian reveals plans for law degree in Vogue interview

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Given the above, it would appear that the 38-year-old socialite has a natural aptitude for criminal law, just like her father, Robert Kardashian, a USA defence lawyer who famously worked on OJ Simpson's murder trial.

She's arguably the queen of reality TV and a business mogul who has just landed her first solo U.S. cover of fashion bible Vogue.

Kardashian said her first year of the apprenticeship involved studying three subjects: criminal law, torts and contracts.

Kardashian began making a name for herself as a vocal supporter of prison reform in recent years, and played an instrumental role in the release of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who was serving life in prison for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.

California is one of four USA states that allows aspiring lawyers without a degree to pass the bar by "reading the law", meaning they intern or apprentice with a practising lawyer or judge.

"I would say [it's] like a minimal monastery", Kardashian says in the video, which shows off numerous mansion's massive, sparsely decorated rooms. "That was really a turning point for me".

In Vogue's May cover story, writer Jonathan Van Meter visits the Kardashian-West estate in Hidden Hills, California, and reports on some surprising details about the couple's $60 million home.

Sisters Khloe and Kourtney also didn't seem that shocked, explaining she's always been like their late father Robert Kardashian, who famously represented OJ Simpson in his murder trial. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. "I guess she's setting up for the next phase of her career while she takes her selfies and dresses down to nothing", she continued.

The mother of three, by the way, is not planning to attend law school, and hopeful attorneys are not required to go to law school prior to taking the bar exam, although it is strongly suggested.

Since July, Kim's pored over law books for 18 hours of supervised study each week. But I think some of the hurtful things that I read online.

Waleed chuckled again before quickly changing tack and praising Kim's legal ambitions, sharing: 'No good on her'. "I don't pay attention to that anymore", she said.

She's not going to law school, however, she has a master plan to get it all done in three years.

Kim became inspired to pursue the career change while she was working to free Alice Marie Johnson from prison past year. "Super easy for me", she revealed.
