NEW YORK (AP) — Kim Kardashian West, a lawyer?

The reality star, makeup mogul, and criminal justice reformer told Vogue she's apprenticing with a San Francisco law firm, inspired by her successful effort to free Alice Marie Johnson.

Johnson was granted clemency by President Donald Trump after spending years in prison for drug trafficking.

Turns out that in four U.S. states, California included, one doesn't need to attend law school to take the bar exam.

Kardashian West is working with CNN commentator, activist, and attorney Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, co-founders of a criminal justice reform group called #cut50, to complete her studies, with the goal of taking the bar in 2022.

What's the hardest part?

Torts, said the daughter of the late O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Kardashian. Kardashian West said torts is the most confusing, contract law the most boring, and criminal law, "I can do in my sleep."
