9781912273331Adult Social Care Law brings together all the 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 and support for asylum-seekers and persons from abroad.

Each chapter begins with an overview of the legal framework of legislation and guidance to provide context to the cases that are digested chronologically within themes. Over 700 case summaries are presented with a succinct headnote, a clear outline of facts and a summary of the judgment to aid the busy practitioner to quickly and efficiently identify the most relevant cases as well as save valuable research time with extensive signposting to the most important resources.

The author, having appeared in many leading cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court, the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights, is ideally placed to provide expert commentary and analysis of the judgments and explain the relevance of older cases within the framework of the Care Act 2014 and associated statutory guidance.
