This chapter makes the case for teaching landmark cases through a stand-alone seminar, with particular focus on reviewing the cases chronologically. In making this case, the authors highlight important principles and themes that readers can look for in the specific cases to follow, including the relationship between psychiatry and broad social and legal trends, in areas such as civil rights, federalism, law enforcement, and the role of government in serving or supporting underserved populations with and without mental illness. In addition, legal understanding of and opinions about clinical issues including diagnosis, treatment and risk assessment are highlighted.
