The event will be broadcast live on the Supreme Court website and the California Courts Newsroom. The court has livestreamed its oral argument sessions since 2016.

Justices and attorneys from the Fourth District Court of Appeal will visit the schools before the outreach session to teach students about the court process and cases being heard by the Supreme Court on June 6.
