""The new edition of this popular work includes coverage of the way in which social work is affected by the Family Law Act, the Carers Act, the Mental Health (Patients in the Community) Act and the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994. New chapters cover the increasingly important areas of services provided to children with disabilities and mental incapacity and vulnerability (including elderly clients). The author sets out the essential areas of law and legal procedure, outlining and discussing the legal implications of social work practice. The book includes a table of statutes, detailed case studies and exercises and will be of practical value to anyone with no previous legal background as well as student social workers and young law professionals.""
