What’s the difference between LAM and the Public Interest Law Centre?
PILC is an independent office of LAM that takes on public interest cases. These are cases that address systemic issues in the law and/or cases that impact specific groups of Manitobans, such as seniors or people with disabilities.
Other independent offices of LAM take on cases that affect individuals. For example, an immigrant who is facing deportation, a parent who is seeking custody of a child or a youth who is charged with a crime.
