The University of Richmond Law Review is proud to announce the publication of its 2009 Annual Survey of Virginia Law. The Law Review publishes the Annual Survey each year as a comprehensive guide to recent legislative, administrative, and judicial developments in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

This year's edition is dedicated to the memory of Professor Robert E. Shepherd, Jr. and features tributes by Richmond Law School Dean John Douglass, The Honorable Walter S. Felton, Jr., chief judge of the Virginia Court of Appeals, and John Cunningham, a former student of Professor Shepherd's. Additionally, to round out the dedication portion of the book, the 2009 Annual Survey features two juvenile law articles: the first on special education law and the second on recent legislation and juvenile transfer.

The issue also features four essays: the first by Adjunct Professor Brent M. Timberlake on the Commercial Space Launch Act; the second by Andrew H. Hook and Lisa V. Johnson on the recently passed Virginia Uniform Power of Attorney Act; the third by appellate expert L. Steven Emmert on Centra Health v. Mullins, an important case considering the election of remedies in civil suits; and the fourth by Richmond attorney and Adjunct Professor Patricia C. McCullagh on Jennings v.
