Kei Komuro, husband of the former Japanese princess Mako, did not pass the bar exam list in New York State.
The New York State Bar Examination was announced on October 29, and the results showed that out of 9,227 candidates, 5,791 passed. However, the list published on the organizer’s website only includes 5785 names, so it is not clear whether Kei Komuro passed the exam.
Komuro, who married the former Japanese princess Mako on October 26, started working as an assistant in a law firm in New York after graduating from Fordham Law School, and received a doctorate in law in May. Take the bar exam in July.
A member of the examination committee who asked not to be named said that due to “administrative reasons,” the identity of candidates may not be disclosed. At the same time, a source close to the former princess and his wife said that Xiao Shi would not comment on the matter.
The chamber needs to pass an exam to obtain a license to practice attorneys in New York State. If he fails this exam, he can continue to register for the next exam while still working as an assistant in a law firm.
If you get a certificate and practise in New York, the studio can earn approximately $205,000 in the first year.
Komuro and Mako registered their marriage on October 26, four years after they opened their relationship. The wedding was postponed twice due to severe public criticism related to the financial scandal of Xiao Shi’s mother. Xiaoshi’s mother’s former fiance said that she borrowed 4 million yen (approximately US$36,000) from him to pay for her son’s tuition, but Xiaoshi said it was a donation, not a loan. So far, it is said that this problem has not been completely resolved.
At the press conference on the wedding day, Mako stated that she had asked Xiaoshi to implement her study abroad plan to “create conditions for establishing a life abroad.” The newlyweds plan to start living in New York as early as next month.
The granddaughter of Emperor Naruhito, Mako, is no longer a princess after marrying a small room. This is the norm for imperial women to marry commoners. After accusing her husband of being a “miner,” she also refused to accept a dowry worth 150 million yen ($1.36 million).
The former princess and her husband now live in a rented apartment in Tokyo and are said to be leaving Japan.
