CHICAGO (CBS) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will be in Chicago Monday to spend the day talking with students and professors at Northwestern University School of Law.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Bob Conway reports, the visit was rescheduled to Monday from Feb. 1 because of the blizzard.

Sotomayor is set to participate in a discussion with legal scholars on topics that could include judicial politics and gay rights. She will also attend a forum of students.

The University of Chicago Law School hosted similar events with Sotomayor in late January. At that time, she advised students to spend more time relaxing and hanging out with their friends.

She also doled out some advice on the legal profession, and talked about her experience as the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice.
