Charles Henry Huberich was born on February 18, 1877 in Toledo, Ohio. He grew up in San Antonio, Texas, where he studied under private tutors. Huberich received his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1897 and his Master of Law degree a year later from the same institution. After receiving his Master of Civil Law degree from Yale in 1899, Huberich spent a few months studying at the Universities of Berlin and Heidelberg.
In 1900, he was elected as an instructor in law and political science by regents of the University of Texas at Austin. During his stay in Austin, he met Laura King Orr. They were married on June 11, 1902. They had one daughter, May Bess. Huberich taught at the University of Texas until he resigned in May 1905. Later that year, he received a Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Heidelberg and he accepted a teaching position at Stanford University.
Huberich taught Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Conflict of Laws at Stanford until 1912. He was an assistant professor from 1905-1906, an associate professor during 1907, and a professor from 1907 to 1912. Huberich was also a professor of law at the University of Chicago during the 1907 summer session, and at the University of Wisconsin from 1909-1910.
After leaving Stanford, Huberich made his home in New York and he set up law offices both there and in London. On July 15, 1925, Huberich was married for the second time, this time to Princess Nina Mdivani. Charles Huberich died at the age of 68 on June 18, 1945.
