The Chubb Rule of Law Fund

Chubb is committed to advancing the rule of law by supporting organizations focused on building and strengthening legal institutions. The Rule of Law Fund was founded and is operated by Chubb lawyers.

The Fund is global in scope and focuses on projects which:

  • Support the judiciary in emerging markets
  • Help develop and draft laws where not yet existent (e.g. to deal with emerging problems)
  • Ensure fair and proper access within governmental bodies, for dispute resolution and/or truth and reconciliation commissions
  • Systemically combat corruption
  • Systemically combat cybercrime, terrorism financing, money laundering, human trafficking and other cross-border crimes
  • Provide systematic access to legal advice

Chubb is proud to have had its unique Rule of Law Fund showcased as a model for other global companies by the UN Global Compact’s Business for the Rule of Law Framework.

Recent Fund-supported projects in Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and the U.S. have focused on helping incarcerated youths, the poor, victims of violent political conflicts and refugees, and combating transnational organized crime and corruption within the legal profession.

Chubb Rule of Law Fellowship

Established in 2012, in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Law School, the Chubb Rule of Law Fellowship creates new pathways for students to build careers in international rule of law and human rights. Exclusively for Penn Law graduates, the fellowship allows a recent graduate to gain valuable experience at a globally recognized advocacy organization, launching his or her career in the field of rule of law and human rights.

The Chubb Rule of Law Fellowship is the law school’s most distinguished fellowship and has had profound transformative impact on Penn Law and the world. The Chubb Fellow is an outstanding scholar/practitioner who works in the front line of some of the urgent rule of law issues of our time.”
