“I had no connection to the justice system,” Kim recalled. “I didn’t know anyone that had really spent time—maybe a friend of my dad’s and he worked on the case and I was able to experience the trial—but as far as a close friend of mine or a family member, I never experienced it.”
But after experiencing firsthand what she could do, Kim decided to embark on this new path.
“As I got to figure out how to help someone and how to make a difference and get them out,” she shared, “I was genuinely naive to all the issues with our system.”
As for the next step for Kim? Completing the steps to become a lawyer, revealing “I am probably going to take the bar Feb. 25.”
In fact, viewers saw Kim find out she passed California’s Baby Bar exam on her fourth attempt during season one of The Kardashians. “The baby bar has a 16 percent pass rate—I mean it took me a few tries,” Kim noted during the summit, “and then I have another one I think it is like a 36 percent pass rate, so about a year.”
Kim’s comments come three years after she opened up about finding her passion for law. As she put in Jan 2020 during the TV Critics Association winter press tour, “I don’t see how I could just say no to someone that really needs help if I know that I can help them.”
