Stephen O'Rourke QC
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the tragic passing of our former member Stephen O’Rourke QC. Stephen served on the Council between 2015 and 2019, assisting in particular with the Council’s development of Scotland’s first sentencing guidelines and helping to set the foundations of all its future work. His contributions to our discussions were always thoughtful, measured and to the point. Stephen was a highly valued and much liked colleague and friend. He will be deeply missed.
