Eminent social work scholar and practitioner Professor Linda Briskman joins Professors Simon Rice and Andrew Day as editors of this comprehensively updated 5th edition of Social Work in the Shadow of the Law.

This book is an essential resource for all those who work in and study human services in Australia, and especially for social workers and social work students. It features:

- new chapters on human rights and on research into multidisciplinary practice;
- new chapter authors;
- new case studies and references;
- detailed updates across the wide-ranging coverage of the intersections between social work practice and the law: adoption; bereavement; child sexual abuse; corrections; domestic violence; elder abuse; family law mediation; financial issues; homelessness; human rights; Indigenous Australians; juvenile justice; lesbian, gay and/or transgender people; mental health; the NDIS; out-of-home care; refugees and asylum seekers; social security; social work ethics; record keeping; working with interpreters; being in court; and rules of evidence.

The analysis of law and social work practice is complemented by chapters that reflect on the alignment and tensions between these two disciplines.

23 years since the first edition, Social Work in the Shadow of the Law continues to provide social and human service workers with invaluable insights into the significance and effect of law in their work, enabling them to work effectively for their clients, with lawyers and the legal system.
