In addition to fighting for the former residents of the Chagos Islands, high-flying barrister Amal Clooney has a new cause that’s taken her to the House of Parliament. The fiercely intelligent lawyer showed just how aptly she balances her busy schedule by attending a meeting with UK Prime Minister David Cameron just hours after partying with Stella McCartney the previous evening.
Amal, who specialises in human rights and international law, was pictured arriving at the Houses of Parliament where one of her cases was being discussed.
She is currently campaigning to free the imprisoned former president of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed – the country’s first democratically elected leader who was overthrown by a coup in 2012.

As part of Mr Nasheed’s legal team, Amal had the opportunity to meet the former president’s wife Laila Ali Abdulla, David Cameron and other politicians at Westminster. The group held a short meeting before Mr Cameron jetted off to Berlin to meet with the Queen and Angela Merkel.
A photo of George Clooney’s wife was tweeted from the meeting, which showed the ever-elegant Amal dressed in a crisp white jacket and skirt suit. Despite having enjoyed a night on the town with Stella McCartney a few hours prior, the Lebanon-born beauty showed no signs of fatigue.
Amal, 37, had spent Tuesday evening catching up with the trendy designer at private members club Electric House in Notting Hill, West London.
The Doughty Street Chambers lawyer was aptly dressed in a playful creation by Stella, a one-shoulder black lace jumpsuit that showed off her svelte figure. Amal paired her outfit with a neon yellow statement clutch and nude heels.
Earlier this year Tomorrowland star George spoke about his wife Amal was “the smart one” in their marriage.
Attending the SeriousFun Children’s Network’s New York Gala, George fluffed his lines and accidentally overestimated the number of countries the charity helped.
“Since 1988, these camps have (helped) over a half million sick kids and their families from over five hun… – over 50 countries – five hundred countries would be too many,” he said. “There aren’t actually that many.”
As the audience chucked, George added, “My wife’s the smart one!”
