The Unique and Constructive Way Kim Kardashian West Studies for the Bar Exam
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star recently gave fans some insight into how she studies for the in-depth examination and to be completely honest, her way sounds like it makes studying so much more enjoyable.
Her practice tests feature personalized questions
Although she has to wait two years before she can take the Bar Exam, Kardashian West hasn’t wasted any time hitting the books and retaining as much information as she can.
On Jan. 30, the reality star took to her Instagram Story to show fans how she’s preparing for the test that determines whether or not she can become a lawyer.
In the clip, Kardashian West reveals the practice tests she uses to study, which features personalized questions geared toward her fashion and beauty brands — KKW Beauty and SKIMS — as well as her home life.
“A celebrity loved her KKW SOOO FIRE promotional box. She kept it on her kitchen counter. One day, her boyfriend, who recently moved into the celebrity’s house, decided to start a fire in the grill. He poured lighter fluid all over the coals in the grill. He lit the match on the KKW SOOO FIRE promotional box. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing in the direction of the home and it lit the celebrity’s house on fire. Fire crews were able to stop the fire. A small portion of the house was damaged,” one question read.
As she shows off her practice packet, the mother of four can be heard thanking the company, JD Advising — which specializes in law school preparatory services —for personalizing questions that have helped her in her law school journey.
“When I have even an hour off, I do all of the test questions and just practice,” she said in the video.
Kardashian has been open about her studies since announcing her plans to become a lawyer
Over the past few months, Kardashian West has proven time and time again that she can do anything she sets her mind to.
Not only has she help free 17 federal inmates and brought nationwide attention to her prison reform efforts, but she’s also been proving naysayers wrong by working tirelessly to become a lawyer.
Kardashian West first revealed her plans to become a lawyer in an interview with Vogue back in April 2019. The KUWTK star shared that she decided in 2018 to begin a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco with the goal of taking the bar exam in 2022.
Since then, the reality star has been studying for the bar exam nonstop and previously went into detail about all the work that goes into her law school training.
“Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple-choice tests monthly,” she captioned an Instagram post of herself studying with her mentors, which she shared back in April 2019. “As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am.”
Though it was hard at first for Kardashian West to juggle law school, her reality show, being a mom, and working on prison reform, she has since found a healthy balance that she admits is working for her.
“Obviously, my kids and my husband, [Kanye West], are my life, so I just had to cut out a lot of all the extra stuff that I was doing and the friends [I had],” she recently told Us Weekly. “I’m best friends with all my friends I’ve been friends with forever, but they understand. They know I just don’t go to all these events anymore, the movies. I don’t do that extra stuff, and that’s OK for me.”
