Marsha is the Editor and Chair of the Board of Editors for IADC's Defense Counsel Journal.

I'm honored to be the next Editor of the Defense Counsel Journal. Many thanks to my predecessor, Christopher Parkerson, for all of his work for the past two years. 

Since its inception in 1934, the IADC Journal has been a forum for both topical and scholarly writings on the law, its development and reform, and on the practice of law. A lot has changed in the 88 years since the Journal’s inception. What has not changed is our intent to publish articles that inform, educate and assist our members and their clients. It seems the pace of change in both the law and our legal profession is occurring faster now than ever before. So, I am asking for your engagement in the Journal, both to comment on its publications and to participate in the submission of articles for publication.

As we look forward to the next year, we want to hear from you. What would you like to see in the Journal? What would be most helpful to your business development? What types of articles would be most helpful in your practice? Please reach out to us at or Amy O’Maley McGuire, Managing Editor, at
