Kim Kardashian says she would be just as happy being an attorney full-time as she is being a reality star slash businesswoman.

The 42-year-old made an appearance at the TIME100 Summit in New York on Tuesday. Kim's shapewear company, SKIMS, is one of TIME's most influential businesses of 2023.

During her discussion with CNN anchor Poppy Harlow, Kim talked about her decision to become a lawyer and her criminal justice reform efforts. 

The mother of four has helped free several men and women from prison. 

Some of the former prisoners she assisted include Crystal Munoz - who was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for conspiracy to possess and distribute marijuana - and Tynice Hall, who received a 35-year sentence for a first-time non-violent drug conspiracy charge.

Kim described her efforts as her most meaningful work.

After failing the "baby bar" exam three times, many thought the reality star would give up. The California baby bar - which Kim took - has a pass rate of 16% -24%. 

The failure didn't make Kim quit! She passed the exam in 2021.

However, she still has a long way to go before becoming a lawyer. Kim revealed that she is aiming to take her final bar exam in February 2025.

"I always joke with my mom, who's my manager,  I say Kim K. is retiring, and I'm just going to be an attorney," she said.

Kim adds that she could see herself leaving her life in front of the camera to focus on her law career. 

"I would be just as happy being an attorney full-time." 

Kim says she gets her work ethic from her late dad, Robert Kardashian, who was also a lawyer. He famously represented OJ Simpson in his murder trial.

Kim Kardashian net worth 

According to Forbes, Kim Kardashian has a net worth of $1.3-billion (R23-billion). She has several businesses under her name including SKNN by Kim, KKW Fragrance, Kimoji, and private equity firm SKYY Partners. 

Her SKIMS business alone is valued at more than $3-billion (R54-billion). Kim co-founded the brand with British businesswoman Emma Grede and her husband Jens Grede.

Emma also co-founded Good American with Khloe Kardashian, as well as Safely with Kris Jenner and Chrissy Teigen.

Kim says the secret to running her successful businesses is working with people she enjoys spending time with.

"If you’re at a place and you take your time, you realize you absolutely do not want to be in business with people that you don’t want to spend holidays with and that you don’t like," she told Poppy at the TIME100 Summit.
