Practical Social Work Law: Analysing Court Cases and Inquiries presents legal issues associated with social work in an accessible format.

It approaches the law in a way that is less daunting and more engaging through case rather than statute law, and examines the stories of real people and the legal and ethical dilemmas practitioners will face. The text explores basic principles regarding the operation of the law and the lessons for good practice, in addition to exploring relevant statute law.

Landmark cases, cases drawn from the lower courts, tribunals, and ombudsman’s decisions are included throughout presenting an accessible account of the application of the law.
