Kim Kardashian Passes Baby Bar Exam as She Follows in Father's Footsteps

Kim Kardashian is one step closer to becoming an attorney after the reality television star has confirmed she passed the baby bar exam.

"OMFGGGG I PASSED THE BABY BAR EXAM!!!!" the 41-year-old tweeted on Monday, December 13. "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."

This was Kardashian's fourth attempt at earning a passing score on the exam.

She revealed that she failed her first-year law exam for the second time on the final episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"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," she explained.

The baby bar is the first of two exams required to become a lawyer in the state of California and the mother of four said she was told that passing this test was extremely difficult.

"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," she said.

In her announcement, Kardashian thanked commentator Van Jones, who encouraged her to enroll in law school.

I appreciate u for letting me tag along &ask all of the little questions along the way," she continued.

Kardashian also thanked her late father, the lawyer Robert Kardashian, and gushed that he would be so proud of her.

"My dad would be so proud & he would actually be so shocked to know that this is my path now but he would've been my best study partner," she said.

"I am told he was notorious for making fun of people who didn't pass on their first attempt like him, but he would've been my best cheerleader!"
