She will also spend part of the day speaking and teaching students at the UB Law School and will be a special guest later that evening at a program for members and guests of the legal community at Kleinhans Music Hall.

"Justice Ginsburg's strong voice supporting gender equality, an independent judiciary, separation of church and state, and human rights deeply resonates with our mission as a law school," said Aviva Abramovsky, dean of the UB School of Law.

Event and ticket information for the program at Kleinhans Music Hall will be announced at a later date.
