The Practicing Law Institute website has announced the passing of PLI President, Anita Shapiro. In 2015, Shapiro appointed as their first female President. She joined PLI in 1999 as a program attorney, then rising from Vice President to Executive Vice President until her appointment as President in 2005. According to her Linked In profile, Shapiro spent two years as a Litigation Marketing Manager at Mayer Brown.
Many in the law librarian community may also remember Shapiro as a Westlaw Account rep in New York City from 1990 to 1999. Shapiro remained a great supporter of the law librarian community and she sought the perspective of law librarians who participated with other legal professionals on the PLI Advisory Board.
