LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will visit Little Rock later this year as part of a lecture series put on by the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton School of Public Service.

Ginsburg became the second female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1993 after then-President Bill Clinton nominated her to the post. She's to speak Sept. 3 on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Ginsburg missed six days of arguments last term as she recovered from surgery for lung cancer, but returned to the bench in February. In March, fans marked her 86th birthday by wearing workout gear and exercising in front of the high court in a nod to Ginsburg's well-known workout routine.

The Little Rock event is open to the public.
