What Is a Landmark Case?

Answer

Landmark cases are court cases that establish new precedents, which lead to new legal principles or concepts that alter the interpretation of the existing laws. An example of a landmark case was Miranda v. Arizona, which led to the mandatory requirement that all police officers must read Miranda rights to a suspect before an arrest.
