The reality star has revealed she's studying to become a lawyer.

Obviously, this was inspired by her time fighting for Alice Marie Johnson who was jailed in Tennessee in 1996.

She was convicted on non-violent charges of attempted possession of drugs and money-laundering along with 15 others.

Kim however, met President Donald Trump in the Oval Office last summer.

The pair came together to discuss prison reform and in particular, the case of Alice Marie Johnson.

During their meeting Kim asked the President to grant clemency to Ms Johnson, who was handed a life sentence.

Trump commuted Johnson's sentence and she was released.

An emotional video of her running to family members outside the prison went viral.

Kim's plans to study law

Kim tells Vogue that the decision to study law was not a decision she made lightly.

'The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency.'

'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, sh*t. 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.'

'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.'

Kim and Kanye

Kim admitted that Kanye dressed her in the early days of their relationship.

'When he was still fairly new to the relationship, he was like, ‘Can I give you a fashion makeover?’'

'I was open: Sure! Dress me up!'

'He took me to a Lakers game and he put me in this black Givenchy leather dress and Tom Ford snakeskin shoes.'

She continues, 'A team of stylists came to my house.'

When asked if she found this controlling she said, 'I wasn’t offended at all.'

'I saw what a response I got. He was right. He’s been my go-to stylist ever since.'

Kim however, has told Vogue that he has accepted he has bipolar disorder.

'I think we’re in a pretty good place with it now... It is an emotional process, for sure.'

'Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.'

'For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.'

'Travelling a lot does set it off, so he doesn’t travel as much as he used to.'

'But honestly, I never want to speak for him, because I am not in his mind.'

Kim supports Kanye

'I think some of the hurtful things that I read online . . . . What is she doing? She’s not stopping him. . . .'

'Like it’s my fault if he does or says something that they don’t agree with? That’s my husband.'

'I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something’s wrong.'

Kim will do everything she can to support her husband.

'Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode...'

'I’ll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation.'
