Social Work Law in Scotland provides a clear outline of the legal framework within which social work operates and is aimed primarily at those with no previous knowledge of the law. It begins with a general introduction to legal terminology and procedure and goes on to discuss areas of law of particular relevance to social workers, including housing, benefits, debt recovery and discrimination. Later chapters deal with the concerns of offenders and of those with special needs.

The second edition takes full account of the changes introduced by the Children (Scotland) Act 1995. The practical emphasis of the book has been improved by increased reference to codes of practice and the inclusion of a new chapter on professional responsibility and accountability of social workers.""
