Law for Social Workers
"Law for Social Workers provides students with exactly what they need in order to understand the legal framework in which social workers act. It provides clear information on key issues in social work law, such as the social worker's duties to society and the 'client'; law and the legal system (with detailed help on the issues of discrimination, human rights, and immigration status), plus the workings of the courts; working with children, including in the civil and criminal courts; working with adults; and legal issues relating to violence, family breakdown, and housing."--BOOK JACKET.
