Heart Breakfast with Jamie & Emma 6am - 9am
With her glittering career as a human rights lawyer and stunning looks, Amal Clooney has set herself apart from George Clooney's previous girlfriends proving she is more than the woman who married the world's most eligible bachelor! In fact, George is lucky to have her! Here are eight reasons why!
Talking to NBC News about her new-found celebrity status, the 37-year-old British barrister said: "I am still doing the same jobs as I was doing before (I got married). If there is more attention being paid than there was before, then that’s good."
Amal isn't afraid to let people know she is a serious human rights lawyer and not just a fashion icon married to George Clooney. The brunette beauty put a reporter in his place when asked what she was wearing at the start of an appeal before the European Court of Human Rights. "I'm wearing Ede & Ravenscroft," she sarcastically replied in reference to London's oldest maker of ceremonial and judiciary robes. Picture: Getty
Amal's day job consists of representing high-profile clients such as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and U.N. Security General Kofi Annan, who she served as an advisor in regards to relations with Syria. She’s also studied law at Oxford University and the New York University School of Law. Picture: Splash

In addition to representing a number of high-proile clients, Amal recently jetted to Greece where had talks with Greek PM Antonis Samaras as part of a campaign to return the Parthenon sculptures from Britain.
We were all blown away when we saw Amal step out in a array of stylish designer outfits during her wedding weekend in Italy with George Clooney. She carries herself with elegance, grace and her wardrobe is effortlessly chic.
As if contributing multiple chapters to books on international law wasn't enough, she has also co-edited a book on law in Lebanon, titled, 'The Special Tribunal for Lebanon: Law and Practice.'
The brunette beauty, who was born in Beruit in Lebanon, is handy with languages. She can speak French and Arabic in addition to English.
Not only does she have the ability to outdress one of the most suave men in Hollywood, she can out sexy him too! In 2013, she topped London’s Hottest Barrister list!
After years of being Hollywood's biggest bachelor, it seems as though George Clooney has finally met his match. But don't be fooled, we think Amal definitely wears the trousers in this relationship!
