Pro Bono Definition
The term pro bono comes from the Latin pro bono publico, "for the public good". Pro Bono generally refers to the provision of professional services voluntarily and free of charge. It is most commonly used to refer to legal services, but can also refer to other types of professional service such as accounting or auditing.
In 2002, in order to promote an already existing pro bono culture in the Victorian legal profession, the Attorney-General introduced a requirement that law firms tendering for government work commit to providing pro bono services to the value of 5-15% of the fees they derive from that work. Pro bono services must be free legal services provided to disadvantaged individuals or to not-for-profit organisations with public interest objectives.
