Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is planning to visit a Phoenix middle school on Thursday to teach students about the country’s justice system.

Joining O’Connor for the lesson at Desert Foothills Middle School in north Phoenix will be Arizona Supreme Court Justice Rebecca White Berch.

Students will argue a case once heard before O’Connor when she was in the Supreme Court.

O’Connor and Berch will sit in on those arguments as an exercise in celebration of Law Day, which is in the first week of May.

An Arizona Supreme Court spokeswoman says Law Day “reminds all Americans that participation and support is needed to maintain our fragile system of democracy.”
