Introducing Guest Blogger Miriam Cherry
I’m very pleased to introduce Professor Miriam Cherry, who will be returning for a repeat guest visit with us this month.
Miriam is an associate professor at University of the Pacific – McGeorge School of Law. She teaches Employment Law, Business Associations, and Contracts, among other subjects. She received her B.A. from Dartmouth College and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
Prior to entering law teaching, Miriam clerked for Justice Roderick Ireland of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, and for Judge Gerald Heaney of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. She was a corporate attorney at Foley Hoag in Boston, and, in the wake of Enron and Worldcom, litigated accounting fraud cases on behalf of pension funds at Berman DeValerio & Pease, also in Boston. She recently co-authored a book, Global Issues in Employment Law, along with Professor Samuel Estreicher.
