New Hampshire's Supreme Court will hear two cases at Salem High School as part of its "On the Road" series.

The justices will travel to the school Thursday to hear arguments in cases involving evidence obtained by police during a road-side search and a confession in a burglary case.

Attorney General Joseph Foster and Deputy Attorney General Ann Rice will visit the school Tuesday to brief students about the cases.

The court's "On the Road" series began in 2002 to give students and community members a first-hand look at how the court operates. It marks the only time the justices hear cases outside the Supreme Court building in Concord.

Last year, the justices went to Concord High School to hear arguments in a case involving reading text messages while driving.
