The Commonwealth Judiciary held a farewell luncheon for Superior Court law clerk Pejman D. Kharrazian last Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Judges and staff of the Judiciary bid their fond farewells to Kharrazian who had worked for the past year as a law clerk for associate judge David A. Wiseman. The judge presented his departing law clerk with a certificate attesting to “his exemplary performance as a law clerk, thereby materially contributing to the maintenance of liberty under law through the fair and impartial administration of justice in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.”
Kharrazian graduated summa cum laude-second in his class-from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in May of 2011. While attending the school, he was a staff editor for the Thomas Jefferson Law Review. Kharrazian will be returning to San Diego to join a law firm where previously been an intern.
Wiseman, in philosophical remarks about the parting of friends and associates, recognized that the departure of law clerks is a regular and expected part of life in a court. The judge also noted that during his twelve years of service on the bench he has had nine law clerks, all of whom found Saipan a beneficial and friendly place to work during the first year of their legal careers.
