Forensic Social Work

Generally speaking, forensic social work is the application of social work to questions and issues relating to law and legal systems. What makes this career different than others in the field of social work? With such a broad range of duties, this job covers more than other clinical jobs. It’s guaranteed to look different each day, and the job does not necessarily work with one portion of the population. All kinds of people are apart of the justice system, and a forensic social worker gets to work with them all! With various functions from providing consultation, education, or training to lawyers, criminals and the public to diagnosis and treating those incarcerated to being an expert witness for a case to teaching, training, and supervising law enforcement personnel, forensic social work is surely to be an experience unlike many other social work positions.
