Wonder Women: Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin) is a London-based, Lebanese-born attorney. She became an instant media darling due to her high profile legal cases, and her impressive fashion choices. Despite being the type of woman who knows how to dress for any occasion, Amal’s lengthy resume is by far the most impressive thing she has accomplished in her lifetime. She graduated from NYU Law School and went on to work at Sullivan & Cromwell in New York City, before relocating to London. She is currently engaged as a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, specializing in international law; and is also a prominent activist and author, having published several articles with Oxford University Press and coauthored a book, The Special Tribunal for Lebanon: Law and Practice.

This extraordinary heroine is sharp, compassionate, and multicultural. Amal has worked to free Al Jazeera journalists from prisons in Egypt, and spoken out against human rights suppressors in Armenia. She has represented the former prime minister of Ukraine, and the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. Amal has also been appointed to a number of United Nations commissions, including as an advisor to Kofi Annan. She is an inspiration to working girls everywhere for her impressive list of accomplishments, and of course, her well-documented and unique sense of style. Amal really does have it all.
