There are plenty of descriptions that can precede Kim Kardashian West’s name: reality star, business mogul, professional influencer and . . . aspiring criminal justice lawyer?
Even the savviest of Kardashian connoisseur were surprised to discover that one of reality television’s first daughters is studying to become a lawyer, as she told Vogue magazine in a cover story published Wednesday. In it, writer Jonathan Van Meter took note of a “pile of big, fat books” on tort law in Kardashian’s bedroom and spoke with her mentors, lawyers Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
“First year of law school, you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts,” Kardashian told Vogue. “To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me. The reading is what really gets me. It’s so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds.” (Harvard Law School lists legislation and regulation, civil procedure and property law as additional first-year subjects.)
