Hilary J. Allen is an Assistant Professor at Loyola University College of Law New Orleans. She teaches in the areas of business and finance law, and her research concentrates on financial systemic risk. She has examined in depth the systemic risks posed by certain types of complex financial products (including money market mutual funds and contingent convertible bonds), and has also looked more broadly at normative approaches to financial stability regulation.
Professor Allen received her Bachelor of Laws from the University of Sydney, Australia, and her Master of Laws in Securities and Financial Regulation Law from Georgetown University Law Center (graduating ninth and first in her class, respectively). Prior to entering the academy, Professor Allen spent seven years working in the financial services groups of prominent law firms in London, Sydney and New York, and in 2010, she worked with the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, which was appointed by Congress to study the causes of the financial crisis of 2007-2008.
