Professor Shapiro teaches Civil Procedure and Evidence. His research focuses on civil procedure, alternative dispute resolution, and related aspects of private law, drawing on legal and political theory to examine the ways in which the state uses legal doctrine to shape the resolution of private disputes. His scholarship has appeared or will appear in the Columbia Law Review and the Yale Law & Policy Review, as well as an edited collection of essays published by the Oxford University Press, and has been selected for the Branstetter New Voices in Civil Justice Workshop.

Professor Shapiro was a law clerk to Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., on the Supreme Court of the United States and Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. He also practiced with Hogan Lovells US LLP, specializing in appellate and complex civil litigation. Immediately before joining the Hofstra Law faculty, he was an Associate in Law and Lecturer in Law at Columbia Law School.

Professor Shapiro received his J.D. from Yale Law School and A.B., magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from Princeton University. He also holds an M.Phil., with Distinction, and D.Phil. in political theory from the University of Oxford, where he was a Keasbey Memorial Foundation Scholar.
