The panel will be chaired by Portland attorney Peter DeTroy. The other 11 members include attorneys, an assistant attorney general, a retired judge, a law professor and the litigation director for Maine Equal Justice Partners.

The deadline for candidates to submit application materials is Feb. 22.
