Miriam Cherry – Featured Scholar

Miriam CherryMiriam Cherry is Professor at the Saint Louis University School of Law and Co-Director of the William C. Wefel Center for Employment Law. Her scholarship is interdisciplinary and focuses on the intersection of technology and globalization with business, contract, and employment law topics. In her recent work, Professor Cherry analyzes crowdfunding, markets for corporate social responsibility, virtual work, and social entrepreneurship.

 

In one of her recent papers, “A Global System of Work, A Global System of Regulation?: Crowdwork and Conflicts of Law,” Professor Cherry discusses how digital platforms like TaskRabbit, Upwork, and Chatterbox post tasks from requesters around the world for completion by remote online workers. She suggests that policymakers consider a system of international rules to set standards for digital labor.
