This is the first year the University of Richmond Law Review has surveyed Virginia law concerning developments in the area of consumer protection. Thus, this article includes background material as well as recent developments that are more than one year old. Except as background for the current statutes, this survey does not discuss the common law torts of fraud and constructive fraud. Although these common law actions remain important to consumers, they have been discussed in several other recent publications.
