Alex earned his law degree magna cum laude from Boston College Law School, where he served as an Articles Editor on the Boston College Law Review. During his time in law school, Alex participated in Boston College’s Community Enterprise Clinic, where he helped clients solve corporate organizational issues, establish Internet policies, and obtain proper licensing to do business in Massachusetts. Alex was an active participant in Boston College Law School’s student government, serving as the school’s President during his third year. Following his first year, Alex worked as a judicial intern for United States District Court Judge Jon D. Levy of the District of Maine.
Prior to attending law school, Alex was a Legislative Aide to United States Senator Angus S. King, Jr. (I-ME).
