Hallahan is newest CNMI Bar member


Assistant attorney general Joseph Hallahan took his oath on Tuesday before CNMI Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro as the newest member of the CNMI Bar after passing the Bar examination last February.

“I’m ready to serve the people of the Commonwealth,” Hallahan said later.

Hallahan has been serving as an assistant attorney general with the Office of the Attorney General Civil Division since June 2016. Before joining the OAG, he was a law clerk for CNMI Supreme Court Associate Justice John A. Manglona for one and a half years.

Hallahan, who hails from Indianapolis, went to Purdue University in Indiana and completed his law degree at the Washington University School of Law.

Attorney General Edward Manibusan, along with Hallahan’s friends, Office of the Public Auditor legal counsel Ashley Kost and attorney Charity Hodson, witnessed the swearing in administered by Castro at the Supreme Court.
