Justices and Judges in the Classroom


This April and May, CNMI students welcomed members of the Judiciary to their schools in honor of the Judiciary's annual Justices and Judges in the Classroom Program. The program is part of the Judiciary's outreach efforts, providing students a chance to earn from justice, judges, law clerks, marshals, and other members of the legal community. As in previous years, the presentations were focused in part around the American Bar Association's Law Day theme. This year's ABA-selected theme was 'Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.'

Associate Justice John A. Manglona was one of the Judiciary members to participate in the program, visiting Saipan Community School on Wednesday, May 9. Accompanied by law clerk Olga Bykov and deputy marshal Roemar Segotier, he presented to the school's sixth, seventh, and eighth grade classes. Justice Manglona described his role in the Judiciary and explained the importance of separation of powers, providing examples of checks and balances from the CNMI's executive, legislative and judicial branches. The team also detailed their functions in the legal system and answered the students' many questions.

The Judiciary looks forward to participating in future community outreach opportunities. Visits to schools by a justice or judge can be arranged by calling Divana M. Dela Cruz at 670-236-9708.
