AuthorParkerson, Christopher B.

It is hard to believe my two-year term as Editor-in-Chief of the Defense Counsel Journal (DCJ) has come to an end. It has been an honor serving the organization. I have been humbled by the opportunity to work with the many authors who have contributed time and effort to make the DCJ one of the premier legal journals in the world. The knowledge, experience, and analysis that our authors brought to the DCJ over the past two years is second to none and being part of the process has been a highlight for me.

It has been a pleasure getting to know and work with Marsha over the past two years, and I look forward to following her work as Editor.

Last, but most important, I want to thank my wife Kimberly Parkerson for all the support during the past two years. She has reviewed all my notes, provided comments and ideas on how to address issues that arose during my time as Editor, and has been a...
