As the Qatar University Law Librarian in Doha, Quatar from 2013 through 2016, Paul’s duties included conducting research for professors, reviewing contracts, and editing legal and non-legal academic articles and memoranda. An important aspect of his job was being able to work with people from diverse, international backgrounds.
In 2013, Paul worked for the Midori Law Group, a boutique firm specializing in obtaining non-immigrant visas for IT engineers from Japan. His focus was writing support letters for B and E visas.
Paul was in academia from 2002 through 2013. He was a legal writing and research teacher at DePaul University College of Law (2009–2013), South Texas College of Law (2008–2009), and St. Mary’s University School of Law (2006–2008). Paul held multiple positions at Fordham University School of Law. From 2004 through 2006, he was Head of Circulation at the Fordham University Law Library; he was the evening and weekend reference librarian there from 2002 to 2004. He also taught Advanced Legal Research for three semesters, training students in all forms of legal research, including type of material (primary and secondary sources) and unique materials based on subject matter (including litigation, intellectual property, and regulatory practice such as securities and immigration).
In 2008, Paul worked, pro bono, on the petition for certiorari in Serafin v. School of Excellence in Education. He did much of the research on different federal court of appeal cases, as the appeal turned on a circuit split unresolved by the Supreme Court. While the Court ultimately denied cert, the petition was persuasive enough that the Court ordered a response to the petition.
Paul worked at Stull, Stull, & Brody in 2002 in private federal securities litigation, primarily pre-trial motion practice.
