Could Amal Clooney be considering a new career move?
Amal Clooney is already a successful human right’s lawyer, activist and author. But it looks like the barrister might be preparing to take on a diplomatic role.
The 37-year-old was spotted leaving a restaurant in New York clutching information about the NYU School of Law’s new course, ‘The Law and Practice of the UN: An Advanced Course for Diplomats’, as she left Morandi restaurant in the West Village.
So, could a role as a diplomat be in the offing? It certainly would be a good fit for Mrs Clooney. Amal has already achieved more in the last decade than most lawyers do in a lifetime. She’s represented high-profile clients like Julian Assange and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, fought for the Elgin Marbles to be returned to Greece, and worked to free three Al-Jazeera journalists imprisoned in Egypt.
She’s currently teaching and sharing her vast legal expertise by teaching as a visiting professor at the prestigious Columbia Law School, while George shoots his latest movie, Money Monster, around Wall Street.
In a statement about her new role, Amal said: ‘It is an honour to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool.
‘I look forward to getting to know the next generation of human rights advocates studying here.’
For her first day on campus, Amal looked totally read to shape all those bright young minds in an all-white ensemble topped off with a Burberry trench and multi-coloured, printed Oscar de la Renta heels.
