Adult Social Care Law is an indispensable resource for all those advising people needing care and support through the overlapping web of legislation, guidance and case-law that makes up the complex field of adult social care law.

The second edition of Adult Social Care Law includes over 700 of the most significant domestic and European cases that form the basis of adult social care law and many other cases in overlapping areas such as the NHS, mental health, housing, welfare benefits and support for asylum-seekers and persons from abroad.

The case summaries are presented with a succinct headnote, a clear outline of facts and a summary of the judgment - often with extensive citations. But this is not just a casebook, each chapter begins with a comprehensive overview of the legal framework of legislation and latest guidance.

Contents include:

  • Consultation
  • Public Sector Equality Duty
  • Assessments
  • Service provision decisions
  • Ordinary residence and local authority responsibility
  • Care home and other closures
  • NHS provision
  • Housing and community care
  • Learning disability and autism
  • Mental capacity and safeguarding
  • Judicial review
  • Regulation
  • Ombudsman decisions
  • Welfare Benefits
  • Inquests

'Adult Social Care' (second edition) is now available on the Legal Action Group website.
