Their convictions, their moods, but also their hard-won place in a world of men: four female criminal lawyers, fighters for justice, engage in a captivating documentary.
The first would like to be a lawyer “as free as possible”. The second would like us to forget that it ” exist “ when she pleads, to see only “the prisoner in the box”. The third seems formal: “to convince is not to please, it is even to displease”. Finally, the fourth argues that ” luck “ of his profession is his “to measure every day what is worth life”. When journalist Lisa Vignoli hands over the microphone to prominent female criminal lawyers, their clear, square words, nourished by anecdotes, produce this beautiful documentary available for rebroadcast and replay on the Public Sénat website.
They are four: Jacqueline Laffont (lawyer for Nicolas Sarkozy, PPDA…), Marie Dosé (Karachi, Sophie Toscan du Plantier, Julien Bayou cases…), Cécile de Oliveira (Laëtitia Perrais, Troadec cases…), Sophie Rey-Gascon. They defend anonymous people or celebrities, live to the rhythm of cases of murder, rape, financial or political scandals. And have made a place for themselves – and a name – in the so long virile universe of the courtrooms, where the famous “tenors” of the bar took all the light.
