Han Kun has always been committed to pro bono work. We consider pro bono work to be of equal stature to billable matters. Our lawyers offer the same caliber of service to our pro bono clients as we do to our paying clients. We hope to utilize our own strengths and resources to raise awareness about the importance of corporate philanthropy and encourage society to participate in and contribute to the development of social responsibility.
Since its founding, Han Kun has had an active pro bono practice. We launched the firm's scholarship program, and in addition we have supported education, provided pro bono legal services and donated to disaster-stricken communities.
The Han Kun Youth Legal Scholarship aims to enhance the professional skills of Chinese legal practitioners, encourage outstanding legal talent to pursue advanced legal studies and promote the sustainable progress and prosperity of China's legal industry. Han Kun is also a member of TrustLaw Connect, a global pro bono service platform that connects NGOs and social enterprises with the best law firms around the world.
We strongly believe that as more enterprises, social entities and individuals participate in non-profit activities, we will collectively enjoy a better society.
The Han Kun Youth Legal Scholarship
As China's leading full-service law firm, Han Kun has expanded and benefited from the tremendous changes and growth in China's legal industry. In light of this growth, we have an ongoing need to attract elite legal talent.
In order to enhance the professional skills of Chinese legal practitioners, encourage outstanding legal talent to pursue advanced legal studies and promote the sustainable progress and prosperity of China's legal industry, Han Kun launched the Han Kun Youth Legal Scholarship (the "Scholarship") to award exceptional young graduates with outstanding academic records from China's universities (including universities in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) who are continuing their education by pursuing advanced legal degrees at top-tier Chinese or foreign law schools (inclusive of JD, LLM and LLB degrees in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and foreign law schools), and who plan on pursuing a legal career in Mainland China after completing their studies in China or abroad.
The Scholarship totals RMB 500,000 annually, and is awarded to 5 outstanding law students who each receive RMB 100,000.
