Jipyong, a law firm incorporated in 2000, has constantly performed pro bono activities with the spirit of “share, care and engage”. Article 1 of the Attorneys-at-Law Act states that the attorney-at-law’s mission is to defend fundamental human rights and achieve social justice. We have consistently endeavored to carry out this mission. Jipyong was the first Korean law firm to establish a Pro Bono Committee dedicated to public interest work in 2000. We have provided pro bono services relating to the disabled, social economy, corporate public services, international human rights, children and youth, and more. Jipyong’s members use their legal expertise to realize social value through pro bono legal advice and representation and public interest research projects.
To engage in pro bono activities more diligently and systematically with Jipyong’s employees and others who share the same values, Jipyong formed DUROO, a non-profit corporation, to make the world a place full of warmth and fairness. DUROO has partnered with numerous NGOs and non-profit organizations over the years, and encourages our attorneys and employees at all levels to participate in pro bono activities.
