Kim Kardashian Expressed Interest In Becoming ‘Full-Time’ Attorney


While speaking at the TIME100 Summit on Tuesday, the reality star, 42, was open about her future in the criminal justice reform movement, stating that it is something she sees envision putting at the forefront of her career.

“I would be just as happy being an attorney full time,” she answered, when asked if she would ever consider a life without being in the camera’s eye.

“The journey just really opened up my eyes so much,” she shared. “It gets overwhelming because there’s so much to be done … I brought my sister Khloé [Kardashian] to a prison for the first time last week, and that was really eye-opening for her.”

While not yet an official lawyer, The Kardashians star shared with moderator Poppy Harlow that she hopes her efforts in the movement will be “her life’s most meaningful work.”

“I hope so,” she said. “I always joke with my mom — who’s my manager — I say Kim K. is retiring, and I’m just going to be an attorney.”


The SKIMS founder’s reform work began in October 2017 after learning about the case of Alice Marie Johnson, who had been in prison since October 1996 after being convicted for helping facilitate communications in a drug trafficking case.
