Amal's Law School Graduation Photo

Post by justpassinthrough on Wed Jul 16 2014, 02:12

From TMZ:  http://www.tmz.com/2014/07/15/george-clooneys-fiance-amal-alamuddin-wig-law-school-photo/

George Clooney is marrying a beautiful, accomplished woman who was once forced to wear something that makes you think she may be distantly related to General Charles Cornwallis.

Truth be told ... Amal Alamuddin got a law degree from Oxford in 2000, and wore the whole English getup for her graduation.  We're guessing the powdered wig stayed in the closet.

She's now a successful international lawyer ... securing British victories at Brandywine and Camden.

If my graduation picture would be online for everyone to see, I would be absolutely not happy with that. How do they even find these things??

And now that I think of it, I don't think it's from when she graduated but when she was called to the bar or however they say it in english.  Smile  Because this picture looks a lot more recent.

When I saw it first I thought it was photo shopped...as I could not imagine pictures like this gets released....  Razz 

I agree it looks recent not like many many years ago.

Her eyes are all shiny...she must be happy that she succeeded and finished it...

For anyone interested in UK Court Dress and the history of it, there's plenty to read here.
As I said before, it's quite normal attire.
The Barristers's Personal wig is kept in a specially designed box.

I only know all this from watching old British court drama films and
more recently a brilliant Court drama series on BBC called Silk.
Highly recommended btw.

Congratulations Amal  Very Happy  It's great that GC decided to marry an educated, smart, accomplished professional women instead of the opposite. This is a positive message for all women....instead of focusing on beauty only, you should put your mind to higher things  in order to marry the most eligible bachelor in the world.

Okay, here we have the Mailonline trying to be VERY careful in their reporting:

But they still got it wrong. Only QCs (Queens Counsel) are awarded silks.

PICTURED: Amal Alamuddin in silks and wig as she graduates from the Bar at start of her impressive career 


She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Jurisprudence 14 years ago from Oxford university, before going on to pass the  New York Bar in 2002 and the Bar of England and Wales (Inner Temple) in 2012. 

And now a snap has emerged of Amal Alamuddin in silks, briefs  and wig as she graduated from the bar, at the start of her illustrious career.  

The human rights lawyer – who will soon be marrying Hollywood star George Clooney – not surprisingly looks delighted in the newly unearthed picture.


The Lebanese-born lawyer certainly has proved over the years that she has both brains and beauty as she initially graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Jurisprudence  from St. Hugh's College, Oxford.
She went on to win the Jack J. Katz Memorial Award  from the. New York University School of Law, before heading into the field of International Law at the UN.
Amal is currently a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers in London, but has also been appointed to a number of United Nations commissions covering international issues from Syria to the use of drones in counter-terrorism operations.
The Amal in that graduation picture  - first publish in Lebanese magazine Laha - could only imagine the type of impressive career she would have over a decade later, and no doubt would be shocked to find she was engaged to one of the most eligible men in Hollywood.

DM again failed to check the basic facts. No silk yet. Amal is a junior counsel with Doughty Street Chambers. See the link: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If she can keep up with her work after she marries GC, she may be able to achieve a lot with her qualifications and the platform.
