After emigrating from the Soviet Union, Shapiro grew up in Canada and later discovered an interest in law.

“I grew up in Canada (after emigrating from the Soviet Union) but always preferred ‘life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness’ to ‘peace, order, and good government," he told Politico in 2018.

"For example, in junior high during the 1988 election, I pasted pictures of Reagan and Bush in my notebooks. In high school, I did well in Ontario Model Parliament and got picked up to work the 1995 provincial election for the Tories—what became known as the ‘Common Sense Revolution.’"

His interest in law dates back to when he was 13 years old and got his first publication in Time magazine.

"I had my first publication at age 13, with a letter to the editor in the January 28, 1991 issue of Time magazine," Shapiro continued.

"I argued that after winning the Cold War, we should work to bring Russia into our orbit instead of just taking victory laps.”
