In your case study please consider the following issues in order to conduct a social work analysis of the case:
· Outline the legal and professional jurisdictions relevant to the case. Identify specific sections of the law relevant to your case.
· Organisational social, and cultural factors that should be considered in your chosen case. The case must be public, which means a case currently listed in the AUSTLII database but it may be from any jurisdiction. It cannot be a case from your placement or work unless that is a case listed in the AUSTLII database and is therefore a case of public record. Assessments should include a broad range of literature to support the claims made.
