#Empowered ~ Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney is much more than George Clooney’s wife. Amal is primarily a barrister, specialised in public international law, international criminal law and human rights.
Her work includes high-profile cases such as Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo v. Philippines, representing the former President of the Philippines in a human rights claim challenging her detention in Manila before the United Nations.
Amal has also been appointed to various international human rights investigations and conflict-resolution panels. For example, she is a member of the Expert Panel of Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, to research evidence of sexual crimes committed in conflict zones.
Prior to joining the Bar in London, Amal has worked in The Hague with numerous institutions such as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
Alongside court work, she also provides advice to governments and individuals on legal issues in her area of expertise.
Not only a style icon, but also a hard-working woman! #Empowered
