Kim Kardashian recently passed her baby bar exam after failing it three times previously. She is one step closer to her dream of becoming an attorney.
In an Instagram post, the entrepreneur and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star announced that after two years of studying and three attempts at the test, she has now passed the California “baby bar” examination, also known as the First-Year Law Students’ Examination (FYLSX).
In spite of previous failures, Kim said she remained motivated because she kept in mind her late father, Robert Kardashian, who if alive today would have been her biggest supporter.
To begin, she wrote a long caption to her 269 million Instagram followers and 70.7 million Twitter followers which began: ‘OMFGGGG I PASSED THE BABY BAR EXAM!!!!
‘Looking in the mirror, I am really proud of the woman looking back today in the reflection.’
She ended the post by encouraging fans to accomplish their own goals.
“Bottom line is don’t ever give up even when you are holding on by a thread, you can do it!!!!!” she wrote. “Set your mind to it and get it done because it feels soooooo good once you get to the other side!”
Those who want to become attorneys in California have to pass exams certified by the State Bar of California.
What is Baby Bar Exam?
The First-Year Law Students’ Examination (FYLSX), or “baby bar,” is a one-day test given remotely in June and October.
Not all law students have to take the baby bar. Law students completing their first year of law study in a juris doctor degree program at a State Bar-unaccredited registered law school, through the Law Office Study Program and those without two years of college work attending a Committee of Bar Examiners- or an American Bar Association-accredited law school must take the First-Year Law Students’ Exam after completing their first year of law study.
The First-Year Law Students’ Exam (FYLSX) is typically given in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas in June and October each year.
The exam includes both essay and multiple-choice questions and is administered in one day. Four hours are allocated for completing the four-essay question portion of the exam, and three hours for one hundred multiple-choice questions.
The subjects covered in this exam are: Contracts, Criminal Law and Torts. An answer based upon legal theories and principles of general applicability is sufficient; detailed knowledge of California law is not required.
