Savana Villagomez Manglona, the daughter of a CNMI Supreme Court justice and U.S. District Court judge, has earned her law degree from the University of California Davis School of Law.

Manglona, the daughter of CNMI Supreme Court Justice John A. Manglona and U.S. District Court Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona, received her juris doctor diploma last weekend together with 150 other graduating law students at the Mondavi Center in the UC Davis campus.

The ceremony was keynoted by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California.

During her time at UC Davis, Manglona was selected as a Sacramento County Bar Association diversity fellow, served as judicial extern for Nunley, and worked at two Sacramento law firms during the summer breaks.

Manglona, an active member of the Moot Court Honors Board, served as a note writer and reprint editor for the Immigration and Nationality Law Review. She also received the Dean’s Merit Scholarship during her three years in law school.

Manglona is a recipient of the Public Law Service Program Certificate, having served many hours of public service. She received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of California at Berkeley in 2015.

Manglona is preparing to take the California bar examination and will be working at a Sacramento law firm beginning mid-September. She hopes to return to the CNMI after gaining some work experience in the U.S. mainland. (PR)
