Kim Kardashian is one step closer to making her dreams come true. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum has been working hard to become a lawyer. She registered with the California State Bar in 2018 to study law on her own time and schedule. Kim has been outspoken about her journey on social media and in magazine interviews.
What’s different about her journey is that she’s not going through traditional schooling. Kim doesn’t have to do decades of studying and work as most lawyers do. Instead, she has to study and pass an exam, which still could take her several years. She had to pass the “baby bar,” which she first failed in 2020.
The Kardashians star shares her aspirations
In April 2019, Kim Kardashian shocked the world when she announced she was studying to become a lawyer. She revealed that she “registered with the California State Bar to study law” just a year prior. The reality star wasn’t taking the easy way out, even though some people beg to differ. She insisted that she was actually working hard at making her dreams come true.
“One person actually said I should ‘stay in my lane,'” Kim Kardashian wrote on social media at the time, per Us Weekly. “I want people to understand there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. Everyone can take this route if you live in a state where this is allowed.”
She didn’t let the criticism or challenges get her done. In summer 2020, Kim earned a 474 when she took the bar for the first time. 560 is the passing score. When she took it a second time, she was diagnosed with coronavirus. Since she wasn’t at her best, she scored 463.
Yet, Kim Kardashian was determined to pass the bar. In August 2021, she told Kristen Bell and Monica Padman on their podcast that she would “question” her ability to pass it. In October of that year, Kim told Wall Street Journal that she still hasn’t passed the exam. It took her several months to try the exam once again.
Kim Kardashian passed the “baby bar” on her fourth attempt
While most people would’ve quit, Kim Kardashian kept at it. In December 2021, the Skims founder announced on Instagram that she passed the “baby bar” on her fourth try. She celebrated the moment in the most Kim way ever. She posted several photos of herself in a Balenciaga gown.
Kim Kardashian was tired of making excuses. Even though she got COVID on her third try, she knew she could pass the exam. In her April 2022 cover story with Hong Kong Vogue, she explained how she persisted. She revealed that she used all of her free time to study and prepare for it.
“The experience taught me so much and I’ve never worked so hard on something in my life,” Kim Kardashian said. “I had to be really diligent about studying and dedicated every spare minute I had to it.”
The KKW Beauty founder is passionate about criminal justice reform. She’s also been inspired by her father, Rober Kardashian Sr., who was also a lawyer. Kim’s hoping that one day she’ll have a successful law firm of her own. Fans will have to wait and see if that happens.
