Summary: Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney returns to Columbia Law School.

Columbia Law School announced on Wednesday that Amal Clooney is returning to their campus. The international human rights lawyer will lecture in Professor Sarah H. Cleveland’s course and to students of the Human Rights Clinic taught by Professor Sarah Knuckey.


Clooney’s impressive resume includes serving as a senior advisor to Kofi Annan and representing WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange.

Last year, the U.K. barrister also had two high-profile cases. She represented two Al Jareeza journalists imprisoned in Egypt and former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed.

“Professor Clooney’s deep experience advocating before U.N. and regional human rights mechanisms complements our existing offerings and enriches the experience of our students,” Cleveland said in the press release.

Clooney, 37, previously was a visiting professor at Columbia last spring, and her appointment brought a barrage of publicity to the school, which included fashion magazines covering her designer style on campus and a rumor that students weren’t allowed to talk about her or her class.

Although she’s the wife of actor George Clooney, Amal Clooney tends to avoid giving interviews. However, this week she appeared on NBC News to discuss her Maldives case and the human rights violations in that country.
