Reality show star, Kim Kardashian, is one step closer to be coming an esquire like her dad.
The fourth time was the charm as the most famous Kardashian passed the “baby bar” exam after failing it three times over two years.
Kardashian made the announcement on Twitter and said her journey in law school “wasn’t easy or handed to” her.

The baby bar exam is the first of two tests needed to be taken to become an attorney in California.
Kim’s father Robert Kardashian was an attorney in Los Angeles and she added he “would be so proud.”
Unlike her father, Kim did not go to law school.
Instead she took advantage of another path offered by her home state of California.
Kardashian does not have a law degree and doesn’t need one because California does not require a law degree as a prerequisite for taking the bar exam. Neither do Vermont, Virginia or Washington.

Instead, these states allow people to become “law readers” by apprenticing with a practicing lawyer for a designated amount of time each week.
Kim is participating in the California Law Office or Judge’s Chamber Program, which requires applicants to complete a form giving “Notice of Intent to Study in a Law Office or Judge’s Chambers” and pay an initial fee of $158, as well as additional paperwork and $105 fees to be submitted every six months throughout the program.

After one year as an apprentice, applicants qualify to take the First-Year Law Students’ Examination, sometimes known as the “baby bar.” If they pass this exam, legal hopefuls are permitted to continue studying for three more years.
