The Richmond Journal of Law and the Public Interest has had a very successful-if very busy-year. At the end of the summer, we published The General Assembly in Review, which was the Journal's first issue published in print. In the fall, we published an issue dedicated to campaign finance reform to correspond with the presidential election. We also hosted a public symposium on this topic, with two experts debating the merits of recent campaign finance reform measures. In the winter, we published an issue dealing with health care reform. And in the spring, we published an issue focused on family law, dedicated to one of the University's most respected professors, Robert E. Shepherd, Jr. Now, we end this volume with our annual publication of The General Assembly in Review, which details the 2009 session of the Virginia General Assembly.
