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’s permanent appointment is with the University of the Pacific – McGeorge School of Law, and this year she is visiting St. Louis University. She teaches Business Associations, Contracts, and Employment Law. 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.
Some of Miriam’s representative publications include:
