Social work is an academic discipline and practice-based profession that concerns itself with individuals, families, groups, and communities in an effort to enhance social functioning and overall well-being. Social functioning defines as the ability of an individual to perform their social roles within their own self, their immediate social environment, and the society at large. Social work law is at the foundation of all social work practice, from shaping professional boundaries to determining the level of intervention. Every case is complex and unique and therefore requires different legal treatment; this means it is absolutely vital that social workers not only understand the law, but are able to critically analyse.

short, I wanted to make the law an interesting, stimulating and sometimes moving read for social work students. It is for this reason that my book centres on Serious Case Re-views, Public Inquiry Reports, Ombudsman Reports and judgements handed down by the courts to explore the realities of social work practice and the law which frames it.   The relationship between law and social work is complex. Does law assist practitioners to promote rights, or is it confined to ensuring accountability and regulating practice? This article explores law's role, and its limitations, in promoting liberty, or more accurately ‘constitutional liberty’.

  (Social Work Law 2nd Edition) is monumental, a book to consult for authoritative and accessible guidance around key topics and service user groups, such as children and families, young offenders, mental capacity, asylum, community care and s: Our workshop offers in-depth preparation for the California Social Work Law & Ethics Examination. Review the relevant laws and ethical standards that are assessed on the Law and Ethics exam! Test your ability to APPLY the facts with sample questions in a variety of clinical situations and question formats.
