Caitlyn Jenner explained to OK! in an interview, "Kim told me she wants to start her own law firm and work on prison reform and try to hire as many former inmates [who've studied law], to help the prison system." Kardashian has previously spoken about finding her calling as a criminal justice reform advocate and thinking about her dad while she's doing this work:
