Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

identify social work practice with individuals, groups and communities within legal contexts

critically analyse alliances between social work and the law

demonstrate appropriate record keeping, consideration of ethical issues and evidence in the context of legal proceedings

demonstrate an understanding of social work and the law across a range of contemporary fields of practice
