We are delighted that Miriam Cherry will be joining us for a guest visit over the next few weeks.
This fall, Miriam will be joining McGeorge-University of the Pacific School of Law. She is currently a law professor at Cumberland Law School, and she is finishing a visit at Hofstra Law School. She received her B.A. from Dartmouth College, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School. Miriam teaches business associations, employment law, and sales.
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 recent publications include: Whistling in the Dark? Corporate Fraud, Whistleblowers, and the Implications of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act for Employment Law, 79 Wash. L. Rev. 1029 (2004); How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (Cases): Gender Stereotypes and Sexual Harassment Since the Passage of Title VII, 22 Hofstra Labor & Employment L.J. 533 (2005) (invited symposium contribution); A Tyrannosaurus-Rex Aptly Named “Sue”: Using a Disputed Dinosaur to Teach Contract Defenses, 82 N.D. L. Rev. 295 (2005). She also has two forthcoming articles on the subject of information markets in the Nw. U. L. Rev. and Rutgers L. Rev., and two forthcoming articles on employment topics in the U.C. Davis L. Rev. and the Berkeley J. of Labor & Employment Law. More publications are at Miriam’s SSRN page.
I was going to write that one of Miriam’s claims to fame is that she has penned the only law review article with “Tyrannosaurus” in the title, but surprisingly there are two other articles. Who would have thought that there are three law review articles about Tyrannosaurus Rex? You learn something new every day.
