Vol. 52, No. 1 (2000) Annual Survey of Georgia Law
The Mercer Law Review publishes the Annual Survey of Georgia Law to provide members of the legal community with a pragmatic synthesis of recent development in Georgia law. This fifty-second edition includes fourteen survey articles and three special contributions, all written by accomplished members of the bar and academia. In addition, the Survey welcomes Professor L. Ray Patterson for his first Legal Ethics contribution in several years and Jerry Lumley for his first Education Law contribution. The Law Review hopes that they will soon become part of our tradition.
Thank you to our authors who have done a superlative job in covering their fields. We are confident that you will find this year's Georgia Survey to be one of the most comprehensive in recent years.
I would also like to express my personal appreciation to the members of the Mercer Law Review for their tireless efforts and to Publishing Coordinator Yonna Shaw for her continued commitment and support to the staff each year.
Finally I wish to thank all of our readers for affording me the privilege of serving as your editor of the Georgia Survey.
