Stephen Knafler QC’s new book, Children’s Social Care Law, has been published by the Legal Action Group.
The book is a comprehensive guide for those advising children with care and support needs through a complex web of legislation, guidance and case-law. This invaluable new resource will be essential reading for lawyers, advisers, carers, health and social care professionals, local authorities and regulators.
Stephen brings together key issues in education, health and social care law in England and Wales and covers in detail all the significant domestic and European cases that form the basis of children’s social care law and cases in overlapping areas such as the NHS, mental health and support for asylum-seekers and persons from abroad. Children’s Social Care Law also deals with wider issues that touch upon the welfare of children.
