This manual seeks to fill a long-felt gap identified by teachers and newly-qualified social workers. It comprises essential legal materials in the areas of law governing the responsibilities of social workers: key parts of the legislation, case extracts, government guidance, regulations and extracts from journal articles. The volume should enable students and newly-qualified social workers to deepen their understanding of the legal issues in social work and to appreciate the legal reasoning of judges. Extracts from guidance and commentaries, and also from enquiries such as the Cleveland or Pindown enquiries, puts the material into a readily accessible context. The book is designed to complement Law for Social Workers.
