(551)  LADY COSGROVE RETIRES

 

Lady Cosgrove, the first woman to be appointed to the Court of Session and High Court bench (in 1996 – see No 3), retired on 24 March 2006.  She finished her career in the First Division of the Inner House, to which she was appointed in 2003 (see No 211).  Perhaps her most memorable contribution to Scots law came in the Lord Advocate’s Reference No 1 of 2001 case (2002 SLT 466), on the definition of rape (see Nos 103, 145, 167).
