Kim Kardashian, Future Criminal Justice Lawyer, Says She 'Aced' Her Most Recent Law Exam

The 38-year-old reality star says she's 'really motivated' to help people by becoming a lawyer.

Kim Kardashian West is giving fans an update on her education.

After revealing in the May issue of Vogue that she is studying law like her late father, Robert Kardashian, the reality star took to Twitter on Wednesday to let everyone know she recently passed an exam with flying colors.

"Aced my test btw," Kim wrote, accompanied with a scale, pencil and pile of books emojis.

Though she didn't specifically mention which test she passed, many believe she was referencing the torts essay she previously revealed she was studying for and asking fans on social media to wish her "luck." Kim is also studying for the " baby bar ," a one-day test given to first-year law students, along with the California State Bar Exam, which she plans to take in 2022 in order to fulfill her dreams of becoming a criminal justice lawyer .

"For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly," Kim explained Monday in an Instagram post. "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 [the] pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals," she added. "You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn't care who you are. This option is available to anyone whose state allows it."

Kim continued on, admitting that although she never initially finished college, she had 75 credits, allowing her to take part in "reading the law" -- an in-office law school being apprenticed by lawyers -- where a minimum of 60 college credits is required.

"For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study," said Kim, who shares three (soon to be four!) kids with husband Kanye West . "I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can't do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine. It's never too late to follow your dreams."

Kim's commitment to studying law comes following all the praise she received for convincing President Donald Trump to grant clemency for Alice Marie Johnson , a 63-year-old inmate who had been serving life without parole for a first-time, non-violent drug offense, last June.

"I had to think long and hard about this," Kim told Vogue , about her surprising new venture. "The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I'm sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, s**t . I need to know more. I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case."

"It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I've always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society," she continued. "I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more."
