We are pleased to say that Hogan Lovells Professor in Law and Finance John Armour has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy.

British Academy Fellowships are awarded to recognise those who are carrying out the very best humanities and social sciences research, in the UK and globally. The British Academy announced its 66 new Fellows on Friday 21st July.

Professor Armour has been a Law Fellow at Oriel since 2007 and he has published widely in the fields of company law, corporate finance, and corporate insolvency. His main research interest lies in the integration of legal and economic analysis, with particular emphasis on the impact on the real economy of changes in the law governing insolvency and company law. Professor Armour has also been involved in policy related projects commissioned by the Department of Trade and Industry, the Financial Services Authority, and the Insolvency Service.

A British Academy Fellowship is one of the highest honours in the humanities and social sciences, and the College congratulates Professor Armour on this achievement.
