She is determined to follow in the footsteps of her late father Robert Kardashian by pursuing a career in law. But it's not that easy. She failed the first-year law exam at first try but she is set to retake it.

Kim Kardashian West (40) shared the news in an Instagram Q&A, while also admitting that she found the bar exams to be "extremely difficult".

In a preview episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim opened up to Kourtney and Khloe about failing the bar exam and feeling like a failure.

“I did not pass the baby bar. This would actually be harder, I hear, than the official bar."

“I am a failure, I spent six weeks straight, 10–12 hours a day studying, and it was so important for me to take this. To not pass gets your spirit down and just makes you want to give up.”

Kim has been involved in the American justice system through criminal justice reform and helped get Alice Marie Johnson pardoned from a life sentence from a 1996 conviction on nonviolent drug charges.

She pleaded her case with former US President Donald Trump and his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.

Trump first commuted her sentence in June of 2018 and then granted her a full pardon in August 2020.
