Using the Law in Social Work Summary

Using the Law in Social Work by Robert Johns

As a core module of the degree course, every student must have an in-depth understanding of the law in relation to social work. This second edition includes recent relevant legislation, for example, the Children Act 2004, which will fundamentally change the way children's services are delivered. Legislation applicable to community care, mental health, youth justice, children and families, and inspection of services is also included and analysed. This book is an interactive resource, which includes activities, case studies, and suggestions for further reading, keeping students up-to-date with the current interpretation of law.

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.
