Landmark Case List Changes


The Landmark Case List is a list of cases deemed especially important by AAPL. From time to time, AAPL makes changes in the Landmark Case List, reflecting the fact that important new cases are decided, and older cases are either supplanted, reversed, or are judged to be of lesser significance. It is important to remember, however, that the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) does not recognize the AAPL Landmark Case List, and so questions on the ABPN examination for subspecialty certification in forensic psychiatry are not limited to cases on that list.
