In this article, you will get all information regarding Kim’s attorney mentor reveals when TV star will finally become a real lawyer
KIM Kardashian’s attorney mentor has revealed when the reality star will take the bar exam and finally become a real lawyer.
The mom-of-four is currently participating in an apprenticeship program after turning her attention to criminal justice reform in recent years.
Kim, 42, passed the baby bar exam in 2021, but she still has a long way to go until she will be a fully qualified lawyer.
Speaking on Law&Crime network, her mentor attorney Jessica Jackson explained that the TV personality is currently doing a four year apprenticeship under her watch.
Kim began the process in 2019, just one year after she successfully lobbied then President Donald Trump to sign a bill assisting prison and sentencing reform, The First Step Act.
But the Skims boss will not become a fully fledged lawyer until she passes the bar exam.
She will be take this in summer of 2024, after flunking the baby bar on her first three attempts between 2020-2021.
Kim is taking an unusual route to become a lawyer because she does not hold an undergraduate degree.
California is one of seven states that allows budding-lawyers to study under a mentor for four years instead of going to college.
“Now I will tell you, that is a much, much harder path,” explained Jessica.
“Because you’re essentially not just working on cases the whole time, but you don’t have professors, you’re having to learn all of the legal doctrine yourself.

She continued: “You have to be self motivated to crack open these old law books and learn all the cases. You’re having to figure it out – it’s very, very difficult.”
RAISING THE BAR
Jessica praised her student for using her global platform as a major celebrity to raise awareness on justice issues.
“She really has just changed the narrative on criminal justice reform,” the human rights attorney said.
“She’s incredible, just such a powerhouse. She’s an entrepreneur, she’s a mom, she’s also law student.”
Jessica revealed that Kim is now giving extra attention to her legal studies after she previously failed her first three attempts at the baby bar exam.
“She has prioritized this and, especially recently, has been doubling down her efforts.”
The baby bar is a mandatory exam that first-year law students attending unaccredited schools must pass in order to continue their legal studies.
It is a seven-hour test made up of four essays and 100 multiple-choice questions focusing on contracts, criminal law, and torts – which is the infringement on a person’s rights.
Kim first revealed her plans to become a lawyer back in 2019 in an attempt to follow in her late father’s footsteps.
Robert Kardashian was an attorney primarily known for representing OJ Simpson during his murder trial in the 1990s.
As well as her legal studies and filming The Kardashians on Hulu, Kim is also the founder of the successful Skims shapewear brand and her skincare company Skkn by Kim, which launched in June.
