Kim Kardashian graces the cover of Vogue Magazine and announces that she's studying to take the bar and become a lawyer.
In the issue of Vogue Kim reveals she’s studying to become a lawyer and decided last summer to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco, with the goal of taking the bar in 2022.

If you remember, last year she successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson in Tennessee, a nonviolent drug offender.
