Difficult Act to Follow - Request for Proposal: Lex Loci
Charles DeGrandpre, author of the Lex Loci quarterly review of selected NH Supreme Court decisions, has written his last column. The NH Bar Journal Editorial Advisory Board has decided to issue a "Request for Proposal" to Bar members who are interested in continuing this column. The complete RFP will be published in the online edition of the Bar Journal.
The Board has decided that it will not run a Lex Loci column in the Winter issue of the Bar Journal, which will be devoted to a retrospective of the Bar Journal and a tribute to Charles DeGrandpre, author of Lex Loci for the past 40 years.
While many details remain to be worked out, the Board has sketched out a process for selecting a new Lex Loci author.
Those steps include:
· Invitation via Request for Proposal. Deadline for responding will be Dec. 31, 2008. Writing samples will be considered, and suggestions for changes in format that fulfill the current role of the column are welcomed.
· A small number of finalist candidates will be chosen and invited to write a column or columns for upcoming issues.
· After the finalists have each written sample columns, the Board will vote to select the successor.
Eligibility: NHBA Member in good standing. Active or inactive status.
