what different types of social work work experiences are there?

Im a second year law student and I want to do a postgrad in social work. I have legal experience but only a month long experience in a care home. I intend to apply in September of this year. Unfortunately due to the pandemic its been hard to find any care work so are there any alternatives that helped you when you were applying to this field or something similar?

    You can try volunteering somewhere. There are opportunities online and some in person. Also not sure where you're located but I believe Truro College has a dual degree in law and social work. SUNY Stony Brook may as well. If you have an interest in the legal aspects, then you can go for a degree in social policy. If you are interested in counseling clients or in eventually doing private practice, then you would go for clinical. For social work, you generally have to do 2 academic years of unpaid internships anyway and then take the ASWB exam to get licensed.

    By September, things will be quite different. You should be able to find experiences in many different types of care facilities.
