PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island judges will be making public appearances throughout the state to discuss the rule of law as part of a new initiative by the American Bar Association.

The association’s judicial division designated March 5 to 11 as the first annual “National Judicial Outreach Week.”

The goal is to advance the public’s trust and understanding of the rule of law and the role courts and judges play in upholding it.

Rhode Island Superior Court Associate Justice Allen Rubine has been involved with the national effort. He’s coordinating it locally so the public can meet judges outside of the courtroom.

Judges will be speaking to various civic, school and church groups about essential elements of the rule of law, such as the fact that no one is above it.
