Afterwards many years of study For her first-year law exam — informally called Baby Bar — reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian shared on December 13 that she Passed the exam in his 4th attempt, “Looking in the mirror,” Kim wrote, “I’m really proud of the woman who looks back in reflection today.”
While much can and will be said about the privileges bestowed on the Kardashian-Jenner empire, it was a feat that fame and nepotism could not earn. “For anyone who didn’t know my law school journey, it wasn’t easy or was assigned to me,” Kim said, before focusing on failing the exam three times over the past two years.
“It wasn’t easy or assigned to me.”
Despite its name, Baby Bar – a seven-hour test focusing on contracts, criminal law and torts – is actually quite challenging as it is in exchange for attendance at traditional law school. Actually, in June 2021 Pass Rate for All Takers of the California First Year Law Exam Only 20.7 percent had: “I was told by top lawyers that it was a near impossible journey and harder than the traditional law school route but it was my only option.”
Kim thanks her mentors, Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney reform coalition, as well as her barbareek Professors and Sam Arlen Farkas and Chuck Schonholtz. “Thank you for putting in the hours and teaching me everything I need to know! 10 hours a day, 4 hours of Zoom daily, week after week of our individual practice,” she said. “we’ve done!” Kim also credits political commentator Van Jones for persuading her to pursue a law degree.
Kim’s ultimate inspiration throughout this process, however, has certainly been her late father, Robert Kardashian, who was a lawyer. “I know my dad would be very proud and would be really surprised to learn that this is my path now but he would have been my best study partner,” she said. “I’m told he was notorious for making fun of people who didn’t pass on their first try, but he would have been my biggest cheerleader!”
After this, Kim must pass the California bar exam before she can officially become a lawyer, although she now looks well-equipped with a newfound confidence: “The bottom line is, never give up when you pull a thread. You can do it!!!!! Put your mind to it and get it done because once you get to the other side it feels so good!”
