Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to demonstrate basic knowledge about juvenile welfare and juvenile court assistance law both of which are essential to providing sound advice to third parties, for work in youth welfare offices and independent institutions and for productive interdisciplinary cooperation. Book VIII of the German Social Code and its interfaces to the German Civil Code (BGB) and Family Proceedings Act (FamFG) will be examined in detail in order provide students with the legal competence for everyday work in this area of social work, beyond basic legal knowledge.
