It’s a big day for Kim Kardashian who has passed her baby bar exam!
The reality star, entrepreneur and criminal justice reform advocate shared the exciting news on her socials, admitting it wasn’t an easy road:
“OMFGGGGG I PASSED THE BABY BAR EXAM!!!!! Looking in the mirror, I am really proud of the woman looking back today in the reflection,” she begins.
“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!!!!”
To be fair, Kim was battling COVID on her 3rd try but as she says, she’s “not making excuses.”
She also describes how the baby bar has a “harder pass rate” than the actual bar exam.
“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.”

She thanked a number of people for helping her on her journey before sharing some words about her late dad, Robert Kardashian, who was a lawyer himself. (You might remember he represented O.J Simpson in his 1995 murder trial.)
“My dad would be so proud & he would actually be so shocked to know that this my path now but he would’ve 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 him, but he would’ve been my best cheerleader!”
Kim ends her message with an important reminder for us all to never give up on our dreams, no matter what.
“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 sooooo good once you get to the other side!”
And she’s right!
Kim did this with the entire world watching her every move. Many judging her. Many doubting her. Many laughing every time she failed. But she kept going.
And so can we.
Kim has been a passionate advocate for criminal justice and prison reform for many years now. She recently said in an interview with WSJ, she hopes to “start a law firm” one day to “help people pro bono and hire people who were formerly incarcerated.”
