Abstract

This paper draws on the experience of completing a systematic review of teaching,learning and assessment of law in social work education. It reviews core elements of the process and questions whether systematic reviews as currently conceived for social work education and practice can realize the claims advanced on their behalf. The paper considers questions of evidence, quality, knowledge, dissemination and research use, and offers observations on the potential of systematic review to provide knowledge for policy makers, practitioners, researchers and academic tutors.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: This paper has contributed significantly to shaping the emerging debated analysis of the role of systematic review in social work. Commended at peer review as an impressive piece of work, it substantially advances knowledge in this field. It gives a comprehensive account of research conducted to rigorous standards, and draws on this to interrogate the nature and quality of evidence for social work policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and educators. Along with companion papers theorising the relationship between law and social work, it informs the work of an international network of researchers exploring the nature of that relationship in diverse national contexts.
