Amal Clooney's career continues to fly.
Amal Clooney’s career continues to fly as it’s announced she’s just landed a job as a professor at Columbia University. The top barrister will be a guest lecturer at the New York university’s law school, teaching the first-year elective course “L6276: Human Rights”.
Amal is one of the world’s most successful human rights lawyers and her biog on the university’s website makes very impressive reading. She has worked on some of the most important international human rights cases of our time, including representing Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks, in his extradition proceedings against Sweden and representing Al Jazeera journalists who had been detained in Egypt following an unfair trial.
Mrs Clooney has also been a senior advisor to Kofi Annan when he was the UN’s Envoy to Syria as well as being one of the UK’s leading experts on the use of sexual violence in conflicts. We think it’s safe to say those Columbia first year students are in for one hell of an education.
Amal lives in London with husband George Clooney, but it’s thought that the power couple will move to New York for the spring while she does her thang and he begins filming his next movie, Money Monster.
Over the weekend, the Clooneys were spotted on a date night in New York where they looked happy as Larry after a meal at Japanese restaurant Kappo Masa.
Love Amal Clooney? Remember when she gave THIS brilliant comeback to a reporter?
