Kim Kardashian is taking her law studies extremely seriously as she plans to work on prison reform with the White House, despite who the future president will be.

The beauty mogul Kim Kardashian, 39, is taking her law studies very seriously after she back in town from a family vacation. “Kim is taking her legal studies extremely seriously now that she’s back in town…[her studies] are all she’s talking about,” a source close to the SKIMS founder spilled exclusively to HollywoodLife. The source also confirmed that Kim has been filming with her BFF Jonathan Cheban, where the duo appears to be discussing her studies, including that Kim needs to take 18 hours of supervised study weekly. As Kim has confirmed it already, she will study fr four years then take the bar exam in 2022 in order t get her law degree.

Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine - It’s never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️

Kim was very close to his late father, lawyer Robert Kardashian, and inspired by him she started working for the prison reform and after becoming an advocate, she decided to study law. The KKW Beauty founder is responsible for freeing many prisoners through lobbying and she intends to continue doing it in the future whether Donald Trump remains as President or Joe Biden. “She’s saying that no matter who is president, she is planning on working closely with them in DC to fight criminal justice and prison reform,” the source said.

“She doesn’t care who’s in office for her to work with, she just wants to really help people and do the right thing and she feels she can work with anybody. She knows she has the power to do that,” the insider continued revealing that Kim could even get home in the country's capital. “This is something that’s really important to her and friends are even saying that they could see her getting a place in DC to be closer to doing her work,” the insider said, noting friends “could even see her running for some kind of office with the drive she has right now. This is no joke for Kim and she’s throwing everything she has into this.”

Kim has now been working with the members of the prison reform group of Oakland, California including her mentors and lawyers Erin Haney and Jessica Jackson. Kim has also filmed a documentary of Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, where her advocacy work is detailed and the two lawyers have also made an appearance in it. One of the prisoners that she freed was Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison for working as a "phone mule" for Memphis drug dealers. Alice also later appeared in the SKIMS campaign where Kim included women from all walks of life, which also featured her sisters, Allison Statter, her childhood best friend, and more.
