In it, writer Jonathan Van Meter took note of a "pile of big, fat books" on tort law in Kardashian's bedroom and spoke with her mentors, lawyers Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
According to Vogue, Kardashian West will sit for what's known as the "baby bar" this summer, after her first year of study. The cover story, published online today, focuses primarily on Kim's recent pursuit of criminal justice reform, for which she's about to begin a four-year law firm apprenticeship in San Francisco. Kim is clearly serious about her studies and says she actually got a 100 on her first test.
Kardashian said she felt out of her depth discussing such a thing, despite "seeing a really good result" in the end. Of course, we also love all the tea spilled like her kids' obsession with Sprite and how Kanye knew Kim was the one when he "saw her in a paparazzi pic with Paris Hilton".
Kim says choosing to pick up a new career was something she had to think "long and hard" about but that she knew she always wanted to "do more". "To me, torts is the most confusing and contracts is the most boring".
"Here's a grandmother who took part in her first-time nonviolent offense and received the same sentence as Charles Manson", she recalled. Super easy for me. "I was really nosey about the forensics". "It's so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds".
In a new interview with Vogue, Kim revealed her goal of passing the bar exam.
As Vogue pointed out, California is one of four US states to allow an alternate method to pass the bar for those who didn't go to college.
As for Kim, she said she's not anxious about people who might react to her news with negativity, and says she's ready to show people what she can do and the even bigger difference she can make. She'll then have three more years before she can be a qualified lawyer.
Her dad Rob Kardashian was famously a member of OJ Simpson's defense team, as immortalized by David Schwimmer on FX.
Kris Jenner, Kim's mother, told Vogue she found the change unexpected and said it surprised her. "She's not stopping him.Like it's my fault if he does or says something that they don't agree with?" "I think she's going to be a singular person in American life".
