When I was appointed Editor-in-Chief of the Richmond Journal of Law and the Public Interest (JOLPI) this spring, I was both thrilled and terrified. The Journal has been increasingly successful in recent years: recruiting large classes of staff members, organizing well-attended symposia, and publishing a record number of issues. The goals the new Editorial Board inherited were lofty ones, including maintaining our recent successes, while adding a new issue in a new medium. The issue that you are reading- the inaugural edition of The General Assembly in Review-is the happy result of those two goals. With this issue, JOLPI takes its place as one of the few Journals at the University of Richmond Law School to publish in print. The costs and efforts associated with this achievement are great and are a testament to both the school's faith in the Journal and the Journal's faith in itself.
