Canadian Child Welfare Law: Children, Families, and the State (2nd edition) provides students in social work and law with an introduction to child welfare law, one of the most complex, demanding and important areas of law and social work practice, but also one that receives relatively little attention in professional schools and academic journals. The book also offers practicing professionals in the justice and child welfare systems with an introductory text if they have not had the opportunity to study this area during their formal education, and it may serve as a useful reference work for busy professionals.

This second edition substantially updates material in the 1991 edition, including consideration of the impact of new legislation and the Charter of Rights. This edition also has added new chapters on liability issues for child welfare workers and agencies, and on the perspectives of social workers on the legal process. The final chapter offers the personal views of four judges on the challenges that they face in dealing with child welfare cases.

About the Authors: The editors and contributors to this volume are leading judges, lawyers, social workers and scholars in the child welfare field in Canada.
