THE SUPREME Court has appointed retired Associate Justice Rosmari D. Carandang as chancellor of the Philippine Judicial Academy (PhilJA). 

Ms. Carandang, who took her oath Wednesday, is the second female retired high court judge to head the judicial education institution.

She mandatorily retired on Jan. 9 after serving the court for more than three years.

Ms. Carandang is replacing Arturo D. Brion, also a former Supreme Court associate justice.

The first chancellor of PhilJA was the late Ameurfina A. Melencio-Herrera, who was also the second woman appointed to the High Court.

Ms. Carandang has a degree in political science from the University of the Philippines, where she also earned her law degree. She served as trial court judge in Manila before becoming a Court of Appeals associate justice, and eventually was appointed to the country’s Highest Court. — John Victor D. Ordonez
