Gadi Ezra is a human rights attorney who advises the Defense Establishment on international strategic matters, while pursuing his Ph.D. in Law. He earned three law degrees from Tel Aviv University and New York University (where he was the first Israeli to deliver the convocation speech), and clerked directly for Israel's State Attorney, where he partook in cardinal decision-making processes. Following graduation, Gadi headed the humanitarian law desk at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he advised diplomats on the laws of war and sanctions regimes. He is a requested speaker in venues around the world where he unfolds his unique perspective on war, as both a human rights attorney and a Special Forces veteran, and is currently in the midst of completing a book describing his experiences. In 2016, Gadi was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the 30 most influential leaders in Israel under the age of 30.
