The Kardashians may have a million occupations, but becoming a lawyer is not one of them, as Kim mocked herself for failing the bar test.
Kim’s Instagram has been buzzing recently, with the 42-year-old releasing a photo of her toned belly and unveiling a new hairstyle that split fans.
Among her fashion-forward articles, the Skims creator reminded us why we adore her by making fun of herself for not having passed the law exam.
Kim enrolled with the California State Bar in 2018 to learn to be a lawyer, but she kept this a secret for a year.
Six years later, she has revealed that she has yet to pass the bar test, which is required to become a qualified solicitor.
Kim posted a picture of Snoopy artwork to her Instagram story, which said: ‘I ain’t passed the bar but I know a lil’ bit.’
The remark comes from a thinking bubble over a studious-looking Snoopy’s head and is a line from Jay-Z’s song 99 Problems.
It’s unclear if the artwork is in her house or something she found while out and about, but we like Kim’s self-awareness.
Kim’s legal schooling was a significant narrative point on the Kardashians’ reality series a few seasons back, but fans have been wondering what the newest update is.
To prepare for this career change, the American Horror Story actress has been studying and working with solicitors Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney.
She initially attempted the ‘baby bar’ in Summy 2020, the first-year test that only around 20% of students pass.
She earned 474 on her first try, however the passing score is 560.
Undeterred Kim took the test again after that year and had an even lower score of 463.
In August 2021, the reality star retook the exam, claiming that if she did not pass this time, she would begin ‘questioning’ herself.
Finally, Kim revealed on The Kardashians in December 2021 that she had passed the baby bar test.
‘I failed this exam 3 times in 2 years,’ she revealed on Instagram. ‘But I got back up each time and studied harder and tried again until I did it!!!’
Kim has been very quiet on the legal front, but this latest post reveals that she has yet to take and pass the bar exam.
‘I’m probably going to take the bar in February 2025,’ Kim said at the 2023 Time100 Summit in New York City, citing the low 36% pass rate as a deterrent.
Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, was a well-known lawyer most recognised for his role in the O.J. Simpson trial, which was depicted by David Schwimmer in the 2016 film The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
‘We talked about it for sure when I was in college, but I wasn’t that serious,’ she told Wall Street Journal in October 2021.
Kim added: ‘Hopefully one day I can start a law firm where we can help people pro bono and hire people who were formerly incarcerated.
‘I don’t see me floating on a yacht. I think I’ll always feel good when I’m working.’
