Using the Law in Social Work Summary

Using the Law in Social Work by Robert Johns

The book is written for student social workers who are beginning to develop their skills and understanding of the requirements for practice. For all social workers the law provides the framework within which services are offered: it is impossible to practise without coming up against the law, and it is impossible to practise effectively without an in-depth understanding of how the law affects everyday social work practice. This book provides students with an understanding of the legal framework within which social workers must work.

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.
