The term "pro bono," which is short for pro bono publico, is a Latin term that means "for the public good." The term has specific significance in the legal arena and is a highly encouraged practice. The idea is to provide equality in access to justice. The underprivileged or people from marginalised society who do not have the means to bear the costs of a lawyer- such people are provided free legal services by lawyers who work pro bono. WCL feels that pro bono work is a social responsibility and it is prime duty of every lawyer to integrate pro bono services into their legal practice.
