She was successful in petitioning to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson who was in an Alabama prison since 1996 and was a non-violent drug offender.  Kardashian presented her case to President Donald Trump who released Johnson. Later on, Congress passed the FIRST STEP act which was a major step forward in criminal justice reform.

According to Vogue, the model said, I had to think long and hard about this” and that wanted to begin this journey due to “seeing a really good result” with Johnson. Adding that, “I never in a million years thought we would get to the point of getting laws passed. That was really a turning point for me.”

Kardashian added, “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, 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, shit. I need to know more. I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair.”

“But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case, she said. “It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

The reality star did not finish college. However, California allows her to take a “baby bar” which will determine whether she can continue the next 3 years of study. “First year of law school, you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts. 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.”
