On Wednesday, September 30, Kim Kardashian went on Instagram Stories to document her bar exam study session with mentors Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney. It involved shots of tequila, because why not? It's 2020, and we have no rules. "This is how we study. I need a chaser. I don't know how much a shot is, to be honest, you guys," Kim says in the video. "Cheers to studying, tequila, and torts nights," she added.
So...did Kim Kardashian pass the bar?
Kim Kardashian hasn't passed the bar yet, and reportedly plans on taking it sometime in 2022. It does look like she has either taken or will be taking the baby bar exam soon, though. One reddit user thinks she already took it, based on a celebratory Instagram Story from Kris Jenner that shows Lawyer Kim-themed cookies. This was posted three months ago, which adds up. It could be that Kim Kardashian passed the baby bar in June 2020. Kim herself hasn't posted anything about the good news, though.
Back in 2019, the reality star and Skims founder announced that she was studying to become a lawyer, like her father Robert Kardashian, and has embarked on a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco. She also studies law for 18 hours a week with Jessica and Erin. “I go to the office [in the afternoon], and then I do my extra reading and stuff at home at about 9 p.m., from 9 to 11. Every night," Kim said on Good Morning America.
Kim claims that studying law has made her a better business owner. “I read over every contract now. It’s what I’m studying and it makes a lot of sense, now, to me. Had I gone to school years ago when I should have, it wouldn’t have meant as much as it does to me, and I wouldn’t have been as into it as I am. Because now, everything that I go through, personal injury law, everything — you have to study everything. You can’t just say, ‘Oh, I want my degree in that.’ You have to do everything, and so it all makes sense to me now. I love it," she explained.
One source told PEOPLE that Kim is doing really well, and has a great memory — something you definitely need if you want to study law and be a good lawyer. "She has a fantastic memory. She can process multiple things at once. She's great at multitasking and at time management. She can grasp very complex concepts. She has a very strong sense of what she believes, and is extremely persuasive. She's also a very hard worker," the source said.
When she first revealed the news to Vogue in their May 2019 issue, she explained, "I had to think long and hard about this. The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, s–t. I need to know more. I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case.”
Not bad for a girl with no talent, as Kim once said.
