Stephen Jones has retired from the Law School having clocked up 40 years’ service.

Stephen will be remembered as a member of staff who taught Criminal Law to generations of students and who introduced Criminology to the Bristol curriculum. He made a major contribution to staff/student events and was for some years ‘Sue Later’, the gossip columnist on the student magazine The Better View. He authored what became a standard textbook on Criminology as well as the second volume of the history of the Bristol University Law School Law at Bristol University 1983-2008: From Faculty to School.

The School held a party on Friday 19th September to wish Stephen and Filomena a happy retirement. It was attended by friends and colleagues, both past and present. Stephen's birthday cake was made by Elizabeth Mumford.
Two of the former colleagues (Nigel Lowe and Brenda Sufrin) who joined the Bristol staff at the same time as Stephen were present as was Mary McCartney who was the first student to study Criminology at Bristol.
