Dijon. Maître Françoise Degott, a social law lawyer passionate about her profession, has passed away

Born on 1er November 1956 in the Bas-Rhin department (67) Françoise Degott first turned to medical studies, neglected in favor of her real crush, which she never tired of: law.

She wrote for the section Le Droit et Vous

In 1981, she took her oath as a lawyer at the Strasbourg bar, before joining the Dijon bar in 1986. She practiced her profession there with passion until her retirement on June 30, 2021, and reached 40 years of career. Intervener in social law and labor law, Maître Françoise Degott pleads before the industrial tribunal and the social chambers of the court of appeal, for the defense of employers and employees. Member of the Council of the Dijon Bar from 2014 to 2016, of which she was a member of the social commissions, her involvement, as discreet as it is effective, earned her to write several legal articles published in the section Le Droit et Vous from Journal The public good.

President Jean-Philippe Schmitt emphasizes this: “She was a colleague who had a great closeness to her clients, who implemented a benevolent and objective defense of cases”. This profession that she loved so much, Françoise Degott wanted to pass on her knowledge and taste, which is why she was involved in a training component. She had recently been a lecturer at the University of Burgundy, and provided training for industrial tribunal advisers, particularly within the framework of trade union organizations such as the CGT.

Maître Françoise Degott died on Wednesday February 9, in Dijon. A tribute speech will be delivered by the President of the Bar during the secular farewell ceremony, Tuesday February 15, at 3 p.m., at the Dijon-Mirande crematorium.

She was a colleague who was very close to her clients.

Jean-Philippe Schmitt, chairman
