Learning, teaching and assessment of law in social work education

Innovation in learning, teaching and assessment of law in social work education: What should the content of law teaching be?

It is not the purpose of this guide to prescribe law curriculum content. Indicators of the range of legislation and other aspects of practice in applying law that might be included are covered in Section 1 (and may be found in further detail in the knowledge review itself; see Braye and Preston-Shoot, et al, 2005). Here we have highlighted aspects of the curriculum that are being newly developed in response to developments in the legal framework, or ideas for raising the profile of skills in using the law.
