BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is preparing to visit Rhode Island.

Scalia will visit the Roger Williams University law school on Monday, where he’ll host an hourlong question-and-answer session with students and faculty. He’ll also teach a class on constitutional law.

Scalia’s visit marks the second time this year that a sitting Supreme Court justice has come to Rhode Island. Chief Justice John Roberts was here in February for the centennial celebration of the state’s federal courthouse.

Roger Williams says a third justice, Samuel Alito, will be at the school later this month.

Scalia is known as one of the more conservative justices. He was appointed to the bench in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.
