In a new interview with Vogue, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star revealed that she’s studying to become a lawyer and decided last summer to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm with the goal of taking the bar in 2022! Kim said she decided to embark on this journey after she successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.

“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, s—. 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,” she continues. “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.”

Kim also revealed that she actually had a long interest in the subject because of her father, the late Robert Kardashian who was an attorney who became a household name when he helped defend friend O.J. Simpson during his infamous 1994 murder trial.

So what is Kim doing right now to study law, considering she didn’t finish college? Well, California, as well as three other U.S. states, offer another path to passing the bar by “reading the law,” or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or Jude, People Magazine notes.

She will take what is known as the “baby bar” administered by the state; if she passes, she will be given the okay to continue for three more years of study, according to Vogue.
