Arizona Supreme Court Justice Visits Trailside Point School

Arizona Supreme Court Justice Andrew Gould visited 7th grade Trailside Point students in conjunction with Law Day on May 1.

Justice Gould focused on the topic of freedom of speech. Trailside students enjoyed discussing the many ways Americans practice this freedom and appreciated hearing more about how free speech has evolved through history. Students examined a 1963 photo of Robert Kennedy speaking outside the U.S. Department of Justice and used it to discuss freedom of speech as a constitutional right in the United States and human right around the world.

Students asked the Justice many questions and enjoyed hearing about his upbringing and entering law school. He was an inspiration to many aspiring lawyers and judges in the room.

Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share. It is promoted by the American Bar Association.
