The term pro bono which is short for “pro bono publico”, a Latin term that means “for the public good”. In practice, the term is used quite specifically in context of the legal profession- referring to the practice of giving legal assistance to those unable to represent them for want of money. In India, ‘Pro Bono Legal Service’ as a concept remains an ad hoc, individualized practice lacking an institutional structure.

In order to establish a framework for dispensation of pro bono legal services, the Department of Justice (DoJ), in collaboration with UNDP, launched, in April 2017, a web based initiative (available at doj.gov.in) on consolidating volunteers from the legal fraternity to provide pro bono legal services to those who dearly need legal aid and counsel, but are unable to afford it. Through this portal, litigants from marginalised communities (including members of scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, women, children, senior citizens, persons with low income and persons with disabilities) can also apply for legal aid and advice from the pro bono lawyers.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) invites the users to create a Logo for the Pro Bono Legal Services initiative. The logo should capture the essence of the initiative and help establish its own identity.
