A note from CEO and Founder, Kerriann Stout
I wasn’t always good at this whole law school and bar exam thing. In fact, a little over 7 years ago, I sat nervously in my very first law school class, praying to the law school gods that I would not be called on. To say I had no idea what I was doing would be a huge understatement. Law school was incredibly different than undergrad and I was not sure how to adapt. So, I asked for help from 2Ls and 3Ls, my professors, our academic success professionals, and anyone else who would listen. With my “village” of support around me, I developed the systems and skills that I needed to be successful.
After I survived my own 1L year, I wanted to pay forward the generous help I had received. I worked at my law school running studying sessions for 1Ls in Con Law, Torts and Criminal Law. I formed wonderful relationships with my students. The ones that put in the time and effort saw great improvement in their study methods, stress levels and, of course, grades. This experience ignited my spark for teaching.
Proof I graduated from law school!
The day I was admitted to the New York bar. A moment that I was happy to be able to share with my parents.
And, that spark has grown ever since. In 2014, I took on my first bar exam students, and in 2015 Vinco was officially born. During my time as an assistant professor of law, and assistant director of academic success, and now as Vinco CEO, I have taught hundreds of students how to conquer their final exams and the bar exam with less stress and more confidence. I also encourage, empower, and guide lawyers to live in their professional purpose. My passion is helping you find your “ah ha” moments and reach your goals.
If you want to work with someone who never received less than A, you won’t find that here. What you will find, are smart, compassionate, and adaptable coaches who understand exactly where you are and how to get you to where you need to be to reach your goals. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get to work!
Yours truly through law school, the bar exam, and the start of your career,
SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME
My favorite color is purple (it borders on an obsession actually). Constitutional Law was my favorite subject in law school. Contracts and Property – not so much. My English Bulldog brother, Hugo, may or may not be (but definitely is) my best friend. I founded an immigration law firm one year out of law school and am still passionate about immigrant rights issues. I can’t think of anything more important than spending time with my family and friends. My biggest life accomplishment to date is meeting Tinkerbell. My mother always said I should have been a teacher – it kills me when she is right.
