Earlier this week she offered up more details on her studies to her millions of social media followers.
She described weekends spent away from her husband, rapper Kanye West, and their children while she studies and reads. Kardashian West said she changed her number last year and "disconnected from everyone" to make her legal dream come true. She brushed off comments that she was just another rich celeb using her wealth and fame to gain access to something others wouldn't be able to.
"One person actually said I should 'stay in my lane.' I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals," she wrote. "You can create your own lanes, just as I am."
The celebrity met with President Trump in the Oval Office last May after she first reached out to Trump's daughter Ivanka to help set up the meeting. A week later, Trump commuted Johnson's sentence.
It was during this time that Kardashian West began to feel she needed to learn more about the law to be a better advocate for non-violent offenders and to help out in the effort to reform the criminal justice system.
"The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency," she told Vogue, "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.'"
All of this becomes less surprising when you consider that Kardashian West has a very direct link to the legal world. Her father was the late Robert Kardashian, who gained his own fame over 20 years ago as an attorney on O.J. Simpson's defense team during the former football star's murder trial.
She told Vogue she understands that people underestimate her because she's mostly known as a reality TV celebrity, but she doesn't worry about that anymore.
"I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me," she said, "because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what's important to me after they've met me."
