Using the Law in Social Work Summary

Using the Law in Social Work by Robert Johns

Law is a core subject of the social work degree and this title introduces students to the complexities and challenges of this subject. Now in its fifth edition, this well-established book looks at how the law in England and Wales interacts with key aspects of practice such as human rights, mental health, youth justice and community care. Fully-revised to include new information on youth justice, this text is essential reading for all social work students. The implications of the Social Work Task Force and ongoing changes to social work practice are also discussed and reflected upon.

About Robert Johns

Before moving into social work education, Robert Johns worked for a number of years in a range of social work roles, predominantly in the public sector. His specialisms were youth justice and court-work, representing the interests of children involved in care proceedings. Academically, his major abiding interest has been social work law but he has also taught social policy and social work values and ethics, hence his latest book, Ethics and Law for Social Workers. Currently, he teaches at the University of East London, where has been Head of Social Work and programme leader for the qualifying MA offered in conjunction with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. He is the author of Using the Law in Social Work, now in its sixth edition, Social Work, Social Policy and Older People and, most recently, Capacity and Autonomy.
