Before coming to Yale, Gilad earned his LL.M. degree, summa cum laude, from Tel-Aviv University; his Master's thesis developed an account of deliberative democracy based on the moral theory of value pluralism. Gilad is a graduate of the Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students at Tel-Aviv University and has served as a research assistant and a teaching assistant in the fields of contract law, law and religion, and political theory.
