Alexis “Lexi” Dellaquila is a 1L at New England Law | Boston and a lifelong Massachusetts resident. Prior to pursuing her law degree, Dellaquila served in the Baker-Polito Administration for over four years, working to develop programs and policies in direct support of Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. In the Governor’s Office, Dellaquila focused on a variety of special projects related to the Governor’s Council to Address Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence. In this role, Dellaquila worked with members of the Council to lead, develop, and implement policies to help individuals and families live a life free from sexual assault and domestic violence. Her desire to pursue a legal degree rooted in advocacy for victims and survivors of intimate partner violence grew through this work. Additionally, she also developed programming to bolster access to STEM education in schools across the state, working with the STEM Advisory Council. Building on this work, Dellaquila hopes to continue to pursue a career in public service and public policy. She is a graduate of Emmanuel College, where she received a degree in Business Management. Dellaquila will be interning this summer at the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.
