Kenny Nguyen attended UC Hastings College of the Law and recently graduated with a criminal concentration. He was the President of the Vietnamese American Law Society at his law school. He earned his Bachelor of Arts at UCLA. He has interned in various district attorney’s offices throughout the Bay Area, and currently he is working as a post-bar law clerk at the San Mateo District Attorney’s Office. In the near future, he would like to work as a trial lawyer within the criminal justice system, where he can be mindful about the concerns of impoverished communities, restore the voice for victims, while possessing outcome-determinative influence to address injustices and ensure the public’s faith in the criminal justice system. During his free time, Kenny enjoys to play and watch basketball. He is a loyal Golden State Warriors fan since back in the days of Latrell Sprewell, before the team became the dynasty they are today. Kenny has a passion for travel, adventure and education, and tries to visit at least two new destinations around the globe every year so he can continue to learn about the world.
