Product Description

Review

Review from previous edition A useful and comprehensive text which I have been recommending to all my students. It has been particularly useful for those who are undertaking their first practice placement and many have commented that they would not leave home without it! (Karen Bayliss, Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln)

This book gives a comprehensive and essential account of the law as applicable to social work. It is accessible for students new to the subject and will serve as a strong foundation for any social work student. (Ian Dore, Lecturer in Social Work, Brighton University)

A comprehensive and detailed reader which will be a useful text to take into practice placements and later into the workplace. (Dave Mason, Lecturer in Social Work, Staffordshire University)

An excellent, clearly written, and accessible text which gives good coverage of the main areas covered in a law for social workers module. The companion website offers invaluable teaching support and great additional resources for students. (Susan Watson, Lecturer in Law, Kingston University)

Format: Paperback
Great book that you can keep on your desk to quickly refer to aspects of the law. The book is aimed at those in university or Nqsw, however I feel it is handy for everyone no matter how long they have been qualified
