Pro Bono Legal Service Declaration

For purposes of this Declaration, pro bono legal serves are those provided without a fee, principally to benefit the poor, underprivileged and marginalized as well as the communities or the organizations that represent or assist them. In addition, pro bono legal services can also benefit civic, cultural and educational institutions serving the public interest who otherwise could not obtain legal services due to economic reasons.

I, the undersigned, solemnly declare my commitment to pro bono by stating as follows:

I agree and believe that, I, as a lawyer, have a responsibility to provide pro bono legal services. This responsibility stems from the profession’s role and purpose in society, and from its implicit commitment to a fair and equitable legal system and a rule of law.

By signing this Declaration, I will practice the philosophy conveyed in the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Lawyers, that is, “lawyers shall protect the legitimate rights and interests of their clients, guarantee the rightful enforcement of law and safeguard social fairness and justice.”

I hereby make a commitment:

I will undertake one or more pro bono cases or provide 30 hours or more of pro bono legal services per year. I further commit that the pro bono legal services will be provided with the same quality of representation as services provided to paying clients, and in a manner upholding the applicable ethical norms and standards.

This commitment will be met within one year of endorsing this Declaration.
