"She came down from Birmingham one cold December day . . ."

Miriam_cherry Cumberland's Miriam Cherry will leave Southern charm and the flowering foothills of the Appalachians behind to spend next year teaching contracts at Hofstra on Long Island.

Cherry, who's been teaching at the Birmingham (Ala.) school since 2003, earned a B.A. (Phi Beta Kappa) from Darmouth and a 1999 J.D. from Harvard, where she was executive editor of the Harvard Women's Law Journal.  Before joining Cumberland, she clerked for the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and then for Judge Gerald Haney on the Eighth Circuit, before practicing with Foley Hoag LLP.

Her newest article, forthcoming in the Northwestern Law Review, is Tiresias and the Justices: Using Information Markets to Predict Supreme Court Decisions.  But her best article title is How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying Cases.
