Hand Book of Social Laws of Pennsylvania (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Hand Book of Social Laws of PennsylvaniaThe idea out of which this book grew was conceived by the workers of The Associated Charities of Pittsburgh, who have long felt that more accurate, comprehensive information regarding the laws of our Commonwealth would strengthen their service to their clients.To determine those statutes which have application to the social relationships and conditions of families and persons which social workers are called upon to serve, and to present, as briefly and untechnically as possible, the provisions of these acts and the process of enforcement are the tasks which have been undertaken by the author. Manifestly a complete compendium of such legislation could not be attempted within the limits prescribed by the object of providing a legal guide for the use of the lay field worker. It is believed, however, that all the laws which are commonly used by social workers, as well as many acts which probably never have been used, but which could be used to advantage, have been covered in this compilation. It is scarcely necessary to state that the book was not designed as a substitute for the services of an attorney. We believe it will be sufficiently clear to those who use the book that the only wise course for the layman in almost every instance is to seek competent legal counsel.The manual should prove valuable to members of the legal profession whose practice includes the handling of cases falling within the range of subjects considered. The references to statutes and to cases have been made exact and in accordance with the usual method of citation in the legal profession, and the treatment of each subject included is practically a brief of the general law which applies.The production of Social Laws of Pennsylvania has been a cooperative enterprise. Not only has the cost of compilation been met by contributions from The Associated Charities of Allentown, The Associated Charities of Harrisburg, The Society for Organizing Charity of Philadelphia, The Associated Charities of Pittsburgh and The United Charities of Wilkes-Barre, and the expense of publication been borne equally by The Associated Charities of Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia Society for Organizing Charity, but these agencies have had opportunity to submit to Mr. Bonsall statements of the cases under their care in which legal problems were involved. Thus the social workers themselves have been enabled, as it were, to aid materially in the preparation of the book by indicating to some extent the range and nature of the knowledge they need respecting the legal aspects of their work.But for the hearty backing and substantial financial support of the Philadelphia Society for Organizing Charity and the availability and abundant legal and social qualifications for the task of Ward Bonsall, Esq., it would hardly have been possible to offer to the social workers of Pennsylvania and to others interested in their work this book, which we trust will contribute in some small degree to better equipment for service.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
