InfoSan José City Councilmember Lan Diep graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2005 with dual bachelor degrees in Political Science/International Relations and History, with a focus on war, revolution, and social change. He obtained his law degree from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law and is licensed to practice in California, Mississippi, Texas, and the District of Columbia.

In the aftermath of the BP Oil Disaster in 2010, Diep moved to Biloxi, Mississippi to serve as an Equal Justice Works/AmeriCorps legal fellow at the Mississippi Center for Justice, where he provided assistance to fishermen, small business owners, and other victims looking to file claims against BP. Fluent in Vietnamese, he particularly focused his efforts on aiding the limited-English-proficient Vietnamese-American community in the Gulf, who account for over one third of the fishing industry in the area.

After two years of public service in the Gulf, Diep returned to San José and took a job with the Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center, directing the Vietnamese-American Workers’ Rights Project, where he again used his Vietnamese language skills to help disenfranchised Vietnamese-Americans learn about and pursue their rights, this time in the context of employment law. In this role, Diep helped improve the condition of low-income workers while simultaneously combating the anticompetitive business practices of unethical employers.
