The Public Interest Law Clinic (PILAC) was set up in January 2012, becoming the premier university based law clinic in Uganda. It was born out of the need to re-engineer the training of law students by incorporating elements in the curriculum that equip students with public interest lawyering skills. PILAC is one of the centres at the School of Law, Makerere University committed to creating a new cadre of lawyers able to promote and protect the rights of the indigent and vulnerable members of the community. PILAC’s vision is a legal profession alive to the social justice needs of the vulnerable. Its mission is to promote social justice through legal education, research, legal aid, public interest litigation and building strategic partnerships. Among others its activities include: Clinical Legal Education, Legal Aid and Community Law program and mobile clinic.
