Kim Kardashian Is Becoming a Lawyer

Celebs |


According to Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West is currently enrolled in law school. He's also happy about it.

"I love it, I love it," he said. "That's all we focus on, helping people that don't have a voice, breaking down the class systems."

Her interest in pursuing law is motivated, apparently, by concern for racial justice. "There's two million African Americans incarcerated now," Kanye elaborated. "We're going to get people out, period... It's extremely serious to us."

Kim first started talking about becoming a lawyer two years ago. Last year, she went on Snapchat to share comments from her attorney: "Okay guys, I'm here with my attorney, Mike Kump, who does all of my lawsuits, everything - and listen to what he was just telling me."


"You've got the perfect instincts, you've got great judgement, and you know how to present your position in the most articulate manner and convince people of your point of view. Will you please join my law firm?"

In June, Kim met with Trump to advocate for Alice Marie Johnson, a woman who received a life sentence in 1996 for a nonviolent drug offense. Johnson's sentence was rescinded a few days later.

Kardashian reports that she's currently attempting to help Chris Young, a thirty year old man who's serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense.

On the Wrongful Conviction podcast, Kim said, "Yesterday I had a call with a gentleman that's in prison for a drug case, got life. It's so unfair. It was just a crazy - there's so many people like him."
