Kim Kardashian, an American reality star and beauty business mogul, announced that she was going to be studying to become a lawyer in May 2019.
This shocked the globe for a variety of reasons, including Kim’s lack of a bachelor’s degree, which is required to sit for the bar exam.
The “baby bar” exam, also known as the California State Bar’s First-Year Law Students’ Examination, is for first-year law students enrolled in a “degree program at a State Bar-unaccredited registered law school, through the Law Office Study Program,” according to the California State Bar website. To be able to take the bar, the “baby bar” is the first hurdle that students must cross.
After her fourth try in two years, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to announce and congratulate herself on passing the California “baby bar” test, which means she’s one step closer to becoming a lawyer.
Here’s her post on Instagram about her journey to becoming a lawyer:
OMFGGGG I PASSED THE BABY BAR EXAM!!!! Looking in the mirror, I am really proud of the woman looking back today in the reflection. For anyone who doesn’t know my law school journey, know this wasn’t easy or handed to me. I failed this exam 3 times in 2 years, but I got back up each time and studied harder and tried again until I did it!!! (I did have COVID on the 3rd try w a 104 fever but I’m not making excuses😉) In California, the way I’m studying law you need to take 2 bar exams, this was just the first one but with the harder pass rate.
I was told by top lawyers that this was a close to impossible journey and harder than the traditional law school route but it was my only option and it feels so so sooooo good to be here and on my way to achieving my goals. A big thank you to @vanjones68 who talked me into going to law school in the first place before introducing me to @jessicajackson and @edyhaney who have brought me along to watch their every move in the court room. I respect them so much and appreciate you both for letting me tag along and ask all of the little questions along the way. And Bar Bri Law School bar prep- I couldn’t have done it without you guys! Setting me up with professors @sam.arlen.farkas and @chuckshonholtz changed my life.
Thank you guys for putting in the hours and teaching me everything I needed to know! 10 hour days, daily 4 hour zooms, our in person practice tests week after week. We did it! I know my dad would be so proud and he would actually be so shocked to know that this is my path now but he would have been my best study partner. I am told he was notorious for making fun of people who didn’t pass on their first attempt like he did, but he would have been my biggest cheerleader!
Bottom line is don’t ever give up even when you are holding on by a thread, you can do it!!!!! Set your mind to it and get it done because it feels soooooo good once you get to the other side! ⚖️
