Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney was a woman on a mission as she stepped out in New York on Tuesday, strutting down a busy street while standing out from the crowd in a vibrant green ensemble. 
The 41-year-old, who is just days away from celebrating her five-year anniversary with husband George Clooney, appears to have timed her arrival in the Big Apple to coincide with the UN General Assembly, a global summit that she has attended on a number of occasions in the past. 
Whatever the reason for her visit, the mother-of-two certainly stood out from the crowds around her, thanks in large part to the vibrant shade of her long $2,690 neoprene jacket and $990 matching knee-length skirt, both of which are from Burberry.

Out and about: Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, 41, was pictured in New York City on Tuesday, wearing a vibrant $3,680 ensemble from British brand Burberry
Amal has long been a fan of the British brand, and has worn its designs on several occasions, frequently favoring the label's iconic trench coats. 

Despite the unseasonably warm weather in New York, Amal also wore a beige sweater under her coat, but she chose to go bare-legged, adding just a pair of simple nude heels to complete the ensemble. 
She topped off the outfit with a pair of large dark sunglasses and a large black handbag, and she modeled a bold pink lip that provided the perfect contrast to the on-trend green of her outfit. 
It is probably that Amal will make an appearance at this year's UN General Assembly; the legal pro works closely with the organization on human rights initiatives, and in 2018, she attended an event held for the Committee to Protect Journalists, where she delivered a powerful speech about two Reuters journalists who had been arrested and jailed after they were found guilty of possessing Myanmar state secrets.
At the time, Amal referred to the trial of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, as a 'sham', and called on Myanmar's leader to pardon them and let them go free - something which happened in May of this year.

Amal Clooney arrived in New York looking both professional and edgy all at once. The famous barrister wore a green scuba-inspired car coat and paired it with a camel-colored sweater, matching skirt and beige patent leather pumps.
The silhouette is not what's catching our attention; it's the fabric which comes across as futuristic.
Amal is wearing Burberry's Neoprene car coat and the A-line Neoprene skirt. If you're loving this look like we are, you're in luck. Click right to pick up the coat at Farfetch and see below for details on how to buy the matching skirt.

Then in April of this year, Amal attended a UN Security Council meeting in New York in order to discuss sexual assault during times of conflict. 
But while her arrival in New York was likely timed to coincide with the UN summit, it is also just a few days before her five-year wedding anniversary with George. 
The pair tied the knot in an extravagant ceremony in Venice on September 27, 2014, in front of a host of high-profile guests, including Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford, Anna Wintour, and U2 star Bono. 
Since then, the happy couple - who are based in the UK - have welcomed twins, Ella and Alexander, who were born in 2017. 
Amal's appearance in New York City also comes just a few days after she supported her husband at a press conference in London, where he unveiled a new report that alleges links between global corporations, governments and rampant corruption in South Sudan.

Major milestone! The couple, pictured in March, are due to celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary on September 27
The conference was held on behalf of his organization The Sentry, a team of investigators targeting war crimes, which the actor founded in 2015 along with former US official John Prendergast.
Amal sat in the front row at the conference as George unveiled the project's latest findings on webs of corruption in the South Sudan, and called on the United States and European Union to target those involved with new and tougher sanctions.
'I believe they should do much more,' he said. 'I don't know if they can stop it but they can sure make it a lot harder.'
The Sentry's 64-page report, The Taking of South Sudan, accuses multinational corporations and individuals of being 'war profiteers' complicit with South Sudanese politicians and military officials in 'ravaging the world's newest nation'. 
'Nearly every instance of confirmed or alleged corruption or financial crime in South Sudan examined by The Sentry has involved links to an international corporation, a multinational bank, a foreign government or high-end real estate abroad,' it stated.

[size=48]Amal Clooney Decries ‘Legal Assault on Journalists’ in Powerful United Nations Speech

The international human rights lawyer spoke on a panel highlighting the dangers facing journalists around the world

Amal Clooney continued to champion the work of journalists during her most recent appearance at the United Nations in New York City.
The international human rights lawyer, 41, spoke on a U.N. panel on Tuesday, highlighting the dangers facing journalists around the world, especially in complicated political climates.
“Our research targets laws being used every day to punish journalists for their work,” Clooney said of her work. “Laws like criminal libel, vague or overboard hate speech laws, so-called fake news laws, and laws that muzzle the media by imposing arbitrary conditions on ownership, accreditation and funding.”

Clooney then criticized leaders like President Donald Trump, who often blasts multiple media outlets for “fake news” and unfair coverage.
“Such laws are part of a rising drumbeat of legal assault on journalists and they are particularly open to abuse when senior officials vilify the media, creating a toxic environment in which individual journalists are incredibly vulnerable to attack,” Clooney said.

In July, she seemingly took aim at Trump while speaking at the Global Conference for Media Freedom in London. In that speech, referenced the fourth president of the U.S., James Madison, who emphasized the importance of the free press early on in the nation’s history.
“Today, the country of James Madison has a leader who vilifies the media, making honest journalists all over the world more vulnerable to abuse,” Clooney said at the time.
The U.N. outing came just days before she and husband George Clooney will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on Friday after saying “I do” at a palace in Venice, Italy in 2014. A source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that the two are happier than ever.

“He appreciates his life with her,” says the source of the happy couple. “They are such a beautiful couple in many ways.”
The husband and wife are also proud parents to twins Ella and Alexander, 2, and have focused on giving their children as grounded a childhood as possible.
That means managing their high-profile careers, philanthropic endeavors and busy work schedules, including Amal’s United Nations’ appearance. George, on the other hand, is preparing to shoot his upcoming Netflix film, Good Morning, Midnight.
“They really try to take turns so one parent is always with the kids,” the source says.

Wow! This is impressive from the former land of Al Bashir and atrocities in Darfur

The prime minister of the new democratic leadership in Sudan has issued a statement at the UN #DefendMediaFreedom session that they will protect journalists and sat on the panel with Amal yesterday

A genuine affirmation of democracy?

Does this mean journalist in Sudan will be free and protected to expose corruption that may exist there?

PAN

Media Freedom is a flowery notion that means nothing.  We live in the most sophisticated democracy on the Globe.  Over 70% of our news: print, network, cable, public radio/TV - sports and entertainment are spewed from one corporate source.  None have the freedom to do investigative reporting and present that truth to a wide audience.

The attention to media freedom has been focused on journalist and very little is known about detailed-truth in their investigative reporting.  The UN presentation may sound impressive to those who don't have the time to search for the truth.  I'm not fooled.

There is a mindset across to the globe to push the concept lies and deception are methods that bring about good/change.  That is a concept driven by twisted people whose mission is to kill, steal, and destroy.

Small glimmers of hope PAN. Thanks for posting the YouTube video of the conference.
I watched a few minutes tonight. It’s long and I’ll try to watch more another day.
