Goes Round and Round
Move over, Elle Woods—another California style icon has hit the books to become a licensed attorney. Kim Kardashian West might be best known as a model and pop-culture megastar who “broke the internet,” starred with her family on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and became a highly successful businesswoman through her makeup, fragrance, and shapewear lines. But in the spring of 2019, she announced to the world that she was studying to take the California Bar exam in 2022. She has since shared updates with her nearly 150 million fans on Instagram while undertaking a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco–based firm. Her goal, she says, is to specialize in criminal law and focus mainly on criminal justice reform. This is evidenced by her involvement in the 2018 release of Alice Marie Johnson, a convict from Memphis who was serving a life sentence in prison for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.
