SUPERIOR Court Judge Joseph N. Camacho visited Kagman Elementary School to talk to students about the doctrine of “separation of powers” as part of the local judiciary’s annual Justices and Judges in the Classroom program.

Judge Camacho engaged the students in a discussion about the U.S. system of government, and the  legislative, executive and judicial branches of government.

The judge also answered the questions prepared by the students.

The school visits are part of the activities that will culminate on Law Day, May 1, 2018, which is designated to celebrate the rule of law throughout the United States, including its territories.

Law Day emphasizes the role of the legal process in American democracy and politics.

The Justices and Judges in the Classroom is one of the local judiciary’s popular community outreach programs, and has been running for over a decade now.
