While in law school, he worked as a summer associate in our San Francisco and Washington, D.C. offices, and twice worked as a law clerk for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California, first in the Civil Division, and later in the Economic Crimes Unit of the Criminal Division. Alex also participated in Stanford Law School's Criminal Prosecution Clinic, in which he prosecuted narcotics offenses and appeared in court under the supervision of the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.

In addition, Alex was ferociously active in Stanford's advocacy skills programs.
