As a civil society organisation the LAC is at the forefront of engaging government on numerous is sues of human rights and presenting the necessary data and arguments to win government over to adjust the legal framework accordingly.
The goal of the LAC is thus not to make dependants, but to facilitate independence and assertiveness amongst potential clients to assist themselves after having received sufficient information from the LAC.
The question is not what the LAC is going to do about it.
LAC is one of Asia's fastest growing cyber security specialists and has been a major contributor to Japan's cyber security infrastructure through LAC's signature services and facilities, including the Japan Security Operation Center (JSOC) of Japan's largest SOC, Cyber Security Laboratory (CSL) and Cyber Emergency Center (CEC).
There is no hint that policy-timid LAC is willing to challenge Canada's nonsensical statutory provisions on Crown copyright, which "protect" unpublished public records forever, including British colonial-era documents that are already public domain in the United Kingdom.
But the slow, sad decline of LAC is a particularly troubling case.
In particular LAC is a case management approach that integrates system and agency level needs for information about children in care with the practice level's need for information about a child in order to be more effective with this child and his/her relevant others (carers, parents, teachers, etc).
We divide articles here into those that: (a) define the problem that LAC is designed to address; (b) present LAC as a systemic planning approach to managing children in care that is a way of responding to this problem; (c) provide an account of the development of the conception of LAC in the United Kingdom and then (d) its adoption in Australia; (e) discuss strategies for implementation of LAC; and (f) the extension of the LAC approach to other areas in child care.
