Kim Kardashian has failed her first-year law exam — again.

Revealing her results on Thursday’s season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the world-famous wannabe lawyer checked the California State Bar website whilst on the phone with law school mentors Erin Haney and Jessica Jackson.

Falling short of the 560 needed to pass the first-year ‘baby bar’ exam, the mum of four’s immediate reaction was, “I failed! F*ck! This is really annoying. I pretty much got the same thing — I mean, a little bit worse.” Kim scored 463 on her second attempt, down from a previous score of 474.

In the episode, Kim then goes to call her sister, Khloe Kardashian, who was wearing a ‘Kim is my lawyer’ t-shirt.

Offering words of encouragement, Khloe assured her that “this one doesn’t count”, suggesting that the result was due to all the other stressors going on in Kim’s personal life.

“Honestly, you had Covid. You had your 40th birthday. You’re just dealing with so much personally in your relationship.” The star is reportedly in the process of divorcing rapper Kanye West after seven years of marriage.

Khloe continued, “even if you passed, we said that would have been a miracle because of Covid.”

“I know but I still wanted that miracle. I believe in miracles,” Kim replied.

The latest comments from across Legal Cheek

The reality TV star revealed only last month that she failed the exam on her first try. “I spent six weeks straight, 10 to 12 hours a day, studying and it was so important for me to take this. And to not pass gets your spirit down and just makes you want to give up,” she said at the time.

Keen to follow in the footsteps of her late father Robert Kardashian, Kim began a four-year legal apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm in 2019 and had aimed to sit the California bar exam in 2022.

“I feel bummed. Like totally bummed,” Kim said in a confessional on the show. “But it is what it is. I know I just have to not stress about it. There’s so many other stressful things going on. I just have to do better in the future.”

The make-up mogul and KKW Beauty founder is expected to retake the exam for a third time later this month.

1) Nobody cares, LC.
2) Nobody is surprised she failed.
3) Get some original content that isn’t several days old, please.



Love it when people say they studied 10-12 hours daily for months and then end up failing. There are not many exams that you can’t pass if you actually spend that long revising.


The Actual Truth

That bar exam is so difficult, not surprised! Hopefully she keeps at it and passes soon.


Actually The Actual Truth

Obviously most on this site have intelligence levels to find this comment odd, but the world is full of people who uses the word “Actual” thus and who spend their lives watching vacuous scripted reality shows. These people might find the bar exam very difficult.



Thank god she failed, otherwise LC would have spammed us with endless articles about how Kim is the next Elle Woods


Archibald Pomp O'City

To the the commenters so far (excluding The Actual Truth) and the majority of those yet to comment at the time of writing: At least she’s trying. You lot will never raise yourself above your station.


The Truth

Hope she sees this bro



said someone who’s station is posting cr*p on legal cheek. well done mate you pwned us



I don’t think Kim is likely to see your comments on here so please keep your simp behaviour to yourself.



“At least she’d trying”… yeah with her army of household helpers and access to the world’s best tutors. She absolutely doesn’t but face the challenges that the majority of normal law students face. She has been constantly bragging on Twitter about how well her legal studies are going hand her law is “in her blood” because of her father. She’s an entitled bimbo who hasn’t realised that you can’t buy a pass to the bar exam.



All that money to buy a cadre of maids, cleaners, gardeners, chefs, nannies etc, yet Kim still couldn’t pass. LOOOOOL!

I would feel a Lang of sympathy for Kim if she hadn’t bragged on Instagram and Twitter how easy law was for her and how she “aced” her mock exams.






‘”I feel bummed. Like totally bummed,: Kim said in a confessional on the show.’ I don’t remember that bit of the original video. I’ll need to check again tonight.



Kim .. Don’t worry exams never were a true measurement of success. I’m happy that you didn’t pass because it ain’t the right time to pass. A lawyer can only be successful if he could maintain patient and hope and this is what god want you to master before you unlock your outstanding legal skills and knowledge. Thus, just remember it’s better to become more resilient lawyer than a lawyer who only pass with lack of interpersonal skills !

It’s just a matter of time and this is what make it a beautiful journey at the end !!

I’m proud of you !

Best ,
