Abstract

In the context of debates about social works relationship with individuals, the state and civil society, educators face a challenge. How best to ensure that professional education prepares practitioners to engage with the task of promoting social justice and human rights? This paper draws on a systematic knowledge review of learning, teaching and assessment of one key subject area in social work education - that of law - to explore the contribution legal knowledge and skills can make to social works engagement with its vision of empowerment and liberation.
