While the news that the reality star is pursuing a career in law may come as a surprise to some, the soon to be mum-of-four has been working closely within the field for some time, working closely with author and CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, cofounders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform, for months, visiting prisons, petitioning governors, and attending meetings at the White House, according to PEOPLE.
With prison reform being one of her many passions, last year Kardashian West, 38, successfully petitioned President Donald Trump to commute the life sentence Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender.
Following Johnson's release, reform legislation was passed in Congress and signed into law by Trump in December.
Pretty impressive for a woman who got her start as Paris Hilton's closet cleaner!
Of her decision to pursue a career in law, Kardashian credits her work freeing Johnson.
“I never in a million years thought we would get to the point of getting laws passed,” she says. “That was really a turning point for me.”
According to PEOPLE, Kardashian West's ambition to further educate herself on the law comes after being sought to advise the White House: “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency.
“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.”
Kardashian West continued: “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.”
