Rule of Law 2030

Why does the Rule of Law matter to Hogan Lovells, our clients and civil society?

Rule of Law 2030 is an evidence based initiative to align our existing Rule of Law Projects with the SDGs and maximise our future impact by collaborating with clients and host governments to implement projects to strengthen the Rule of Law, particularly where it is weak.  With over 2500 lawyers working with clients operating in some of the most challenging jurisdictions, our potential impact is huge.

We are looking for partners who would like to collaborate with us to identify a weakness in the Rule of Law in a jurisdiction where they operate and to design and implement a solution to address this.  This might be by advising the government on streamlining judicial proceedings to reduce delay in the enforcement of contracts; training the judiciary in international law to reduce the instances of arbitrary or discriminatory treatment; or setting up operational level grievance mechanisms to ensure that foreign investors can engage with stakeholders affected by their operations in a meaningful, collaborative and compliant way.
