In Wednesday’s release from Kim Kardashian’s family show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” she told her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, that she failed her law examination.
“So you guys, I did not pass the baby bar,” Kim says.
“The way I’m doing it, it is a four-year program instead of your typical three-year program,” Kim explained in the confessional. “And after year one, you have to take the baby bar. This one actually is harder, I hear, than the official bar,” she says in the clip.
She was told by Jessica Jackson, a human rights attorney, where Kim is interning, that she needed a score of 560 but got a 474.
“That’s extremely close to a test that most people are not taking in the middle of a pandemic,” Jackson tells Kim.
“I am a failure,” Kim tells her sisters. At the same time, lamenting that she spent six weeks straight, 10 to 12 hours a day studying for the Exam.
Khloe and Kourtney are supportive, telling Kim that their father, lawyer Robert Kardashian, would be proud of her and pointing out what a noble thing she’s doing. Kim wants to get into law to pursue her work in criminal justice.
“The fact that I spent all that time away from my kids,” she says. “Like I can’t do it again, I don’t have time.”
In 2019, the reality star announced she was training to be a lawyer and is on apprenticeship for four years with a law firm in California. She has given fans an insight into her law journey on Instagram Stories and her preparation for a mini-bar exam.
Although Kim sounded disheartened in the episode, which was recorded in October 2020, she confirmed in her Instagram Stories yesterday [26 May] that she was not going to give up.
“How are you finding the bar exams?” a fan asked.
“Extremely difficult. Unfortunately, I haven’t passed yet, but I’m not giving up, and I’m preparing to take it again soon.” Kim replied.
