A. Brown vs. Board of Education Provision: Equal protection Clause Significance: required each state to provide equal protection under the law to all people within its jurisdiction. This clause was the basis for the Supreme Court decision which precipitated the dismantling of racial segregation in the United States.
B. Miranda vs. Arizona Provisions: “Privileges and Immunities,” “Equal protection of the law.” Significance: statements made in response to interrogation by a defendant in police custody will be admissible at trial only if the prosecution can show that the defendant was informed of the right to consult with an attorney before and during questioning and of the right against self- incrimination prior to questioning by police, and that the defendant not only understood these rights, but voluntarily waived them.
