Gadi Ezra


Gadi is a PhD. Candidate at the Zvi Meitar Center for advanced legal studies. In his research, under the supervision of Dr. Eliav Leiblich and Prof. Yaniv Roznai, Gadi examines the constitutional arrangements and war clauses in various countries and compares them to their practical application, and justifications under international law. In his thesis, Gadi focused on the “global legislation” of the UN Security Council, and the contribution of its resolutions to customary international law.

Gadi holds both an LL.B and LL.M (specializing in public law) from Tel-Aviv University, within the accelerated track, and another LL.M from NYU (specializing in international legal studies).

While studying, Gadi counsels different entities on public and constitutional law. In addition, he teaches the course “Contemporary Issues in Israel”, as part of the Parasol Foundation International LL.M. Program at TAU Law; and functions as the Secretary of the Israeli branch of the International Society of Public Law, ICON-S. Moreover, he frequently lectures in various forums worldwide on the complexities of applying humanitarian law in the field.

Previously, Gadi worked as a legal adviser in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and later, in the defense establishment, where he dealt with international strategic matters. At TAU Law, he was a Teaching Assistant in the courses “Constitutional Law” (for Prof. Eyal Benvenisti and Dr. Sharon Vintel) and “Intelligence Organizations, Law and Ethics” (for Dr. Raphael Biton). He was also a research assistant in various projects at TAU Law, as well as at the Center on Law and Security at NYU Law.
