Academic Excellence Tutor
Counsel, Berger Montague
Kaylynn A. Johnson graduated cum laude from Mitchell Hamline in January 2020. She is currently admitted to practice in the State of Minnesota and United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. During her time at Mitchell Hamline, Kaylynn volunteered for Street Law, was a writing associate for the Journal of Public Policy and Practice, was a student representative for the Federal Bar Association, and served as the associate director of the Mitchell Hamline Self-Help Clinic. Kaylynn currently practices consumer rights law under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. More specifically, Kaylynn assists consumers who have been denied jobs or housing due to inaccurate criminal history reporting in their employment/tenant background check reports, as well as consumers who have been denied credit due to inaccurate reporting in their credit reports.
Her approach to tutoring is to have the students practice and work through problem areas, this is the key to success on the bar exam. As a tutor, she aims to provide detailed feedback on practice questions, find those problem areas, and provide tips for being successful on exam day. Kaylynn chose to be a tutor because she loves watching students put all their hard work from law school into practice. The bar exam is a scary topic, and she wants to play an active role in helping students feel prepared to pass the exam with flying colors.
