Community Care and the Law is the pre-eminent legal text on adult social care law. Its contributors are leading experts in the field and the lead author, Professor Luke Clements, was the expert adviser to the Parliamentary Committee that scrutinised the Bill that became the Care Act 2014.

The sixth edition has involved a comprehensive revision of this established text to provide an up-to-date analysis of the law relating to the rights of adults in need and carers in England.

There is a comprehensive coverage of local authority duties and powers, to adults in need and to carers - including assessments, care planning, ordinary residence, care and support services, direct payments, NHS responsibilities, housing, safeguarding and the rights of asylum-seekers.  The remedies chapter has a step by step guide to complaints, ombudsman and judicial review procedures.
