Chapter 23 includes cases that are important for one of the staples of forensic psychiatric practice, competence to stand trial evaluations. Knowledge of the legal standards required for one to defend oneself, either with or without an attorney, is necessary for a practitioner to be able to capably assess whether a mental illness prevents a defendant from participating in the adjudication process. The cases in this chapter are Dusky v. U.S., Wilson v. U.S., Jackson v. Indiana, Drope v. Missouri, Godinez v. Moran, Cooper v. Oklahoma, and Indiana v. Edwards.
