Kim Kardashian has made a name for herself for, well, pretty much being famous for being famous. But, in recent years, she seems to have ventured beyond her reality TV beginnings.
Following in the footsteps of Kylie Jenner, Kim has created her own beauty line and, now, in quite a turn of events, the mom-of-4 is becoming a lawyer.
Yep, the internet was pretty shocked and confused when the star announced that she was heading to law school earlier this year. But, when you look at what Kim had been doing with herself in the months beforehand, it becomes pretty clear that she is genuinely passionate about criminal reform.
And, now, the star has her eyes set on owning her own law firm, and she already knows who she'll be hiring... ex-inmates and ex-inmates alone.
Kim Kardashian is known for her Keeping Up With The Kardashians fame.

Kim told Vogue she is passionate about making a difference in people's lives.
But, she has opened up about the struggles of studying...
And she has also settled the score on people claiming it's her "money" that allowed her to enroll in the course.

This week, Kim has opened up about her future law career further...explained.
The star revealed she has nearly completed her first year out of 4 required to gain a law degree.
