Key Features

The Therapist Development Center is proud to report that 95% of our customers pass the LCSW Law and Ethics Exam using our LCSW exam prep study system. The LCSW Law and Ethics Exam was created to ensure that unlicensed social workers understand the California laws and social work ethics that govern clinical practice. Passing the LCSW Law and Ethics Exam is required in order to obtain a license as a clinical social worker in the state of California. The California LCSW Law and Ethics Exam must be taken annually until passed in order to maintain status as an Associate Social Worker, which is necessary to accrue clinical hours. The BBS requires all associates to complete 3 hours of continuing education on legal and ethical issues every registration period. This means, every year, associates must complete 3 hours of coursework on this topic. The 12-hour course is no longer required for associates who do not pass the Law & Ethics - these associates will follow the same requirement of 3 hours for each registration period.

TDC's practice tests simulate the real tests better than competitors. Their method of teaching helps you really know how to approach reasoning questions. They offer more for auditory learners as well as being able to practice on tests, which made it very helpful. I would choose their material before any of the competitors.

I loved this study program! It is well worth the investment. I loved the fact how the study guide was developed in a way on how I wanted to study. The practice exams and audio recordings were also very helpful and put the law and ethic concepts to practice!

Thank goodness I found your program! I had purchased another program to prepare for the LCSW Law & Ethics exam. While studying, I noticed the other program's answers conflicted and were confusing. My test was quickly approaching when I decided to abandon the other program and buy yours instead. As soon as I started studying I noticed your information was very up to date (the other program wasn't). And I loved the program's structured study outline and the oh so helpful rationales for each answer. Your program was so informative, current, and prepared me to pass. I highly recommend this study program! Thank you so much!! <3
