About the Programme

The Law Society of Hong Kong Pro Bono and Community Work Recognition Programme 2018 is a method for The Law Society of Hong Kong to encourage law firms and members to carry out pro bono and community focused work; it was set up in January 2010. All members, trainee solicitors and registered foreign lawyers who are active in giving back are given the opportunity to present their service so they can be recognised and their work appreciated.
