In recognition of his work, he received the U.S. Department of Defense, Secretary of Defense Global War on Terrorism Medal in 2021
As a leading international lawyer and national security law scholar, Mr. Paradis is on the faculty of Columbia Law School, where he is a Lecturer, and previously taught at Georgetown Law School. He is a critically-acclaimed author and a prolific speaker, and is editor in chief of the popular appellate law podcast, Audio Arguendo, which curates and broadcasts appellate arguments from around the globe.
