Who is Amal Alamuddin?

Who Is Amal Alamuddin? Meet George Clooney's Fiancee

Amal Alamuddin is obviously a pretty special woman.

She's managed to get perpetual bachelor George Clooney to put a ring on her finger, after all.

But Alamuddin is a lot more than the latest beautiful woman to take her place on Clooney's arm: here's what you need to know. (Via YouTube / IBA Global Insight )Amal Alamuddin is obviously a pretty special woman.

She's managed to get perpetual bachelor George Clooney to put a ring on her finger, after all.

But Alamuddin is a lot more than the latest beautiful woman to take her place on Clooney's arm: here's what you need to know. (Via YouTube / IBA Global Insight )

"In a free society, you don't want the government to exercise an influence over judges."

Euronews reports The 36-year-old is an extremely successful international lawyer who's represented some pretty big names - including WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. (

Fox News reports Alamuddin was born in Lebanon and studied law at Oxford University and New York University School of Law.

And according to Forbes, after completing her education, she practiced law at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP's New York office for several years.

From there, Alamuddin moved on London, where she now specializes in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law for the firm Doughty Street Chambers.

During her career, Alamuddin has advised United Nations former secretary-general Kofi Annan and Ukraine's ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, as The Independent points out.

And ABC reports she has represented Assange in his fight against extradition from Sweden since 2011.

On top of all of that, Alamuddin is also a published scholarly writer.

She co-edited the book "The Special Tribunal for Lebanon" and co-authored an article in the Journal of International Criminal Justice. (Via Oxford University Press, Oxford Journal)

With all of these accomplishments under her belt, one of her colleagues had nothing but praise for the successful lawyer during an interview with the London Evening Standard. "She is a fabulously bright woman, she's independent and has a Rolls-Royce mind."

And while her fiance has a long list of impressive former flames, Alamuddin's isn't too shabby either. (Via CBS / "Late Show" )

According to several reports like Bloomberg's, she has been linked to Eric Schmidt, the director of Google, in the past. (Via )

Though Clooney has long preferred the actress/model types, like his most recent ex Stacy Kiebler, many say the actor really needed a woman of substance - like Alamuddin - to get him to finally commit. (Via People)

And they have a lot in common too - As CNN notes, both Clooney and Alamuddin share a passion for human rights.

So if anyone could steal the elusive George Clooney's heart, it would definitely be someone who's both brilliant and beautiful. Life's just not fair.

I am sorry this is the third post but I could not resist. I am thinking that maybe a possability that Clooney is still trying to learn her Language and where her origianal country is. If he is happy and she is happy f every one else. Be happy no one else can do it for you. Congradulations.

Stop being racist. This girl (or woman) is seriously ugly. Don't need to be a racist. Beauty is international. And this woman is not one of them. She is OLD.

Intelligence and good looks make for a killer combination of attraction. They both have it.

All that should matter is that George seems to be in love with her. Everything else does not matter! Our opinion does matter one bit.
