“The author shows that a book can be user-friendly without loss of accuracy or scholarship. This is a genuine achievement. Every social worker owes the author a debt of gratitude.”
Dr Paul Okojie – Manchester Metropolitan University

“Social Work law strikes just the right balance between providing detailed information and discussing the practice and policy arena in which law must operate.”
Dr Carole Smith – University of Manchester

Within Social Work, a solid understanding of the law is essential. Written with the non-lawyer in mind, Social Work Law presents a practical and accessible guide to the legal framework that any social worker, or student of social work needs to know. The author provides a balanced account of the law as applied to children, families and vulnerable adults alike, and pays particular attention to the key areas of: the dynamic relationship between the law and social work practice; the crucial role of anti-discriminatory practice; and the continued growth in the importance of the Human Rights Act, 1998.

  • Exercises and case studies highlight the practical application of the law
  • End of chapter summaries identify the key points from each topic and provide a  valuable revision aid
  • Further reading sections and website references encourage you to explore the area further
  • A glossary of legal terms

all of which create an invaluable learning resource for any student of Social Work, at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for every social work student 13 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is just fantastic, easy to read and well layed out. It comes with a range of features such as access to mylawchanber.com... In short, this book, although will not make you an expert in UK law, will certainly enable you to understand and to be competent and applying every single legislations related to social work. I cannot recommend this book anough.

By GSH
Format:Paperback
Alison Brammer was my course tutor when I attended Keele University to read a masters in Safeguarding: Law, Policy and Practice. Alison is not only a first class tutor, she has developed an easy to read book on the ever developing area of social work practice within the law. I have a sociolegal background, graduating in law and now retraining in social work, hopefully to undertake future doctorate studies in a psych-sociolegal area. This book is really one of a kind, offering a legal sandwich approach to the difficult practice within social work and it nicely stacks law - social work with law and is highly recommend for any student studying social work and indeed, practitioners.
