Pro bono means that lawyers have an inherent duty to deliver free legal service or substantive fee reduction to the general public who need assistance. It has become a global phenomenon in the rapid development of the legal profession. In this century, Chinese lawyers and law firms began to accept pro bono values and perform pro bono work in China. I examined the development of Chinese pro bono from multi-dimensions including the legal profession, government, society, and legal service market, and will demonstrate that pro bono has been increasingly institutionalized in the Chinese context.
