Robert I. Stevenson will retire from his position as Professor of Law at the University of Richmond School of Law at the end of the 1981-82 academic year. Mr. Stevenson joined the faculty of T.C. Williams in 1974 and since that time has shared his knowledge, his wit and his perspective with countless students who by chance or design enrolled in his courses. To acknowledge our deep appreciation for the contribution which Mr. Stevenson has made to the quality of legal education at T. C. Williams and to express our sense of loss at his impending departure, the Editorial Board gratefully dedicates Volume 16 of the University of Richmond Law Review to Robert I. Stevenson.
