Justice Jagot worked as a solicitor with Mallesons Stephen Jaques from 1992 to 2002, specialising in planning and environmental law. She was promoted to partner in 1997, but left the firm when she was admitted to the bar in 2002, after which she developed a highly successful practice as a barrister. She was subsequently appointed as a Judge of the New South Wales Land and Environment Court in 2006. She also served as an acting judge of the Equity Division of the Supreme Court of New South Wales for a period. She was appointed as a Judge of the Federal Court of Australia on 3 September 2008.

Previously a tipstaff at the Supreme Court of New South Wales and a part-time lecturer at UTS, Sue still lectures at the LPAB since coming to the bar. Sue has been in a number of publicised defamation and intellectual property matters acting both for plaintiffs and defendants. Sue was called to the Bar in 2004 and was recently appointed Senior Counsel in September 2020.
