Irene Lynch Fannon

Biography

Irene Lynch Fannon is a graduate of University College Dublin (BCL, 1982); Oxford University (BCL, 1986, Senior Scholar, Somerville College) and the University of Virginia (Doctor of Juridical Science, 1999). She qualified as a Solicitor in 1985 with The Incorporated Law Society of Ireland. She has published extensively in the areas of Corporate Insolvency and Rescue Law and Corporate Law Theory. At present she is Principal Investigator on JCOERE, (2018-2020)  a project funded by the European Union (DG Justice) on European judicial co-operation in corporate rescue cases. In 2012 she published the second edition of Corporate Insolvency and Rescue which is co-authored with Gerard Murphy BL (Bloomsbury Professional, Dublin, 2012). This is under contract for a 3rd edition. In 2016 she published a Second Edition of Corporations and Partnerships in Ireland with Kluwer International Encyclopaedia of Laws which provides an update of Irish Company Law following the passing of the Companies Act 2014. This is also under contract for a third edition. Professor Lynch Fannon maintains an interest in comparative corporate law theory. This interest is currently focussed on issues of sustainability and corporate action. Her latest book arising from her work in this area is a collection co-edited with Prof. Beate Sjafjell of the University of Oslo Faculty of Law called Creating Corporate Sustainability: Gender as an Agent for Change (Cambridge University Press, 2018). She continues to contribute to the SMART project (Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade) at Oslo University. She has developed a new module- Contemporary Issues in Corporate Law- which introduces students to ideas on reshaping the modern corporation. Her earlier book Working Within Two Kinds of Capitalism (Hart Publications, Oxford and Portland Oregon) led to a number of publications in this area. She received funding in 2014 and 2015 from the Irish Research Council on the reshaping of modern corporations in Europe to include women on boards of directors. She was a visiting Professor at Cleveland Marshall College of Law in addition to holding the Baker Hostetler Chair at that law school during the academic years 2002-2004. She was a European Commission expert evaluator for the Marie Curie Actions under FP6 and has reviewed for the Irish Jurist, the Dublin University Law Journal, the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, and for Cambridge University Press. She is a Ministerial appointee to the Company Law Review Group 2016-2018 and 2018-2022 and has served on a number of Government bodies including the Audit Review Group established by the Government following the Public Accounts Committee Enquiry into DIRT and other irregularities (2002);  the Business Regulation Forum, the High Level Group on Business Regulation 2007-2011. She was Head of the Department of Law at University College Cork from 1999-2002 and  Dean of the Faculty of Law during 2000-2002. She has also served as  Head of the College of Business and Law, 2008-2013, during which time she was a member of the University Management Team. In 2014 she was a Visiting Academic at the Oxford Law Faculty, whilst on research leave from University College Cork. She has been an External Examiner including Examining at doctoral level at TCD, UCD, Nottingham Trent University, the Incorporated Law Society and the University of Northumbria, UL and DCU and has been an Examiner in Company Law for the Kings Inn.

Research Interests

At present my research interests continue to focus on two areas, the law of corporate insolvency and rescue and corporate law theory.  I have an international and national reputation in the area of corporate insolvency and rescue law following the publication in 1996 of
Lynch, I. Marshall, J. and O'Ferrall, R: Corporate Insolvency and Rescue (Butterworths, Ireland, 1996, Xlviii+372pp.) and
Lynch-Fannon, I. and Murphy G. N.: Corporate Insolvency and Rescue ( Bloomsbury Professional, Dublin, Ireland, 2012) which is the second edition of this important work.
This work has been cited in both the Irish High Court and the Supreme Court.
The third edition is currently under contract with Bloomsbury Professional.

In the period from around 1993 onward I developed an interest in comparative labour market standards, particularly as regards the United States and the European Union and how different theories of the function of corporate law affected outcomes regarding stakeholders such as employees. My research in this area led to my doctoral thesis which I began whilst on sabbatical at the University of Virginia in 1994, which I completed in 1999. This was awarded as a Doctorate of Juridical Science, SJD in 1999.
 
From 2003 onwards, the publication ofLynch-Fannon, I: Working Within Two Kinds of Capitalism(Hart Publications, Oxford-Portland, Oregon, 2003 X+160pp) together with further book chapters on comparative corporate governance which are detailed below, led me to an engagement with the study of comparative corporate law systems. My continued interest in Corporate law theory has led to the development of a new module in Contemporary Issues in Company Law (LW3347) and engagement in a H2020 sustainability project entitled SMART based at the University of Oslo Faculty of Law. I hope to build on this interdisciplinary emphasis and focus on corporate sustainability in the short term. I have recently co-edited a book entitled Creating Corporate Sustainability: Gender as an Agent for Change which will soon be published by Cambridge University Press. I am also contributing to an edited collection on Sustainable Trade and Investment with a piece on Apple Tax ( forthcoming, Edward Elgar) and to a second edited collection on Multidisciplinarity and Sustainable Corporate Law with a piece on Law and Economics and the Failure to understand Corporate Function (forthcoming, Springer).
My research interests are in Company Law, in particular Corporate Insolvency and Rescue Law. Corporate Law Theory with emphasis on EU-US comparisons.
