Letter from the Editor


The Richmond Journal of Law and the Public Interest is proud to present its annual spring issue, which this year focuses on the intersection between law and parenthood. The subject is of particular relevance and concern during this political season, given the discussions at both the national and state level regarding maternal decision-making. The debate has ranged from the requirement that insurance companies cover birth control as preventative care, to the enduring dilemma women face about whether their work at home or at the office holds more value. This issue seeks to supplement, and perhaps broaden that conversation.
