On February 28, 2023, Judge Joseph N. Camacho went to Kagman Elementary School to meet with fourth and fifth grade students and discuss with them how our judicial system works. The event was part of the Justices and Judges in the Classroom program, in which members of the bench visit schools every year to give students the chance to learn about the rule of law.
Judge Camacho talked with the students about the annual theme for this year’s Law Day: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration. He said, “Meeting with students is one of my favorite things to do as a Judge, and the annual Justices and Judges in the Classroom event is a wonderful program. The topics we discuss are serious, but we do it in a way which is accessible for the children.” He added that the students also enjoyed the chance to hold his 10 lbs. stainless steel gavel. Next week, Judge Camacho plans to visit Dandan Elementary School as well.
