What is the baby bar exam?
The state of California introduced a mandatory examination that first-year law students attending unaccredited schools must pass in order to continue their studies.

The “baby bar,” as it’s colloquially known as, is a one-day, seven-hour exam made up of four essays and 100 multiple-choice questions in Contracts, Criminal Law, and Torts.
On an 800 point scale, examinees have to score a minimum of a 560, or 70% accuracy rate, to pass.
Currently, California is the only state that employs this system. California also offers a path to passing the bar without attending law school by “reading the law,” or apprenticing with a practicing lawyer or judge.

When did Kim announce she wanted to be a lawyer?
In 2019, Kim revealed she had been studying as part of a four-year internship at a law firm to prepare for her bar exams in 2022.
President Donald Trump called Kim about the case of Alice Marie Johnson, who she helped free from prison in 2019. Kim was successful in getting Johnson pardoned.
Kim told Vogue: “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***. 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.
“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.”
Since advocating for Johnson, she has started studying law and has stepped up on behalf of numerous other convicts. In April, she released “Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project,” a documentary on Oxygen.
In November 2020, Kim sought Trump again, asking that the sentence of federal death-row inmate Brandon Bernard be commuted to life in prison without parole before Bernard’s Dec. 10 execution date, however, he was still executed on this date.
What has Kim said about Caitlyn Jenner running for governor of California?

“Gavin [Newsom]’s District Attorneys across California are releasing dangerous criminals back on to our streets.”
She added, as she gets ready to run for the job herself: “Enough is enough. #RecallGavin”
According to TMZ, Kim has shared her thoughts on prison reform with Caitlyn and discussed why she thinks the topic is so important with her many times over the years.
After all of the conversations they’ve had, the Keeping Up With he Kardashians star is “disappointed” and “disturbed” by Caitlyn’s words.
