13 pictures that prove Amal Clooney is a complete boss

Amal Alamuddin Clooney has landed in New York City, and she’s made an even bigger splash than her mega-star husband, George Clooney.

The pair are in the Big Apple while Clooney films a movie, and Alamuddin Clooney has been spotted everywhere from lunch with Anna Wintour to the halls of Columbia Law School, where the noted human rights lawyer will reportedly lecture this spring.

One thing is for sure — Alamuddin Clooney is impeccable. Whether she’s outshining her husband on the red carpet or representing Armenia in a human rights court over the Armenian Genocide, she is a complete boss.

Amal Alamuddin Clooney may have made headlines for landing notorious bachelor George Clooney, but she's a true star in her own right. A noted human rights lawyer, she has represented everyone from former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko to the country of Armenia in its fight for recognition of the Armenian Genocide. Here, she speaks at a training session for lawyers in Bahrain.

In 2011, She represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during his extradition case against Sweden. That's her on the far right, leaving Britain's High Court with her client.

A written judgment will be handed down at a later date, as yet unspecified.

She recently advised the Greek government in its battle to repatriate the ancient Elgin Marbles statues from Great Britain.

But she hasn't let the spotlight distract her from her work. In January 2015, she appeared at the European court of Human Rights to represent Armenia in its fight for recognition of the Armenian Genocide. When asked 'who are you wearing?' -- she responded without skipping a beat, 'I'm wearing Ede & Ravenscroft,' the maker of her ceremonial robes.

Clooney and her colleague Robertson will represent Armenia during a hearing on the case of Dogu Perincek, Chairman of the Turkish Workers Party, against Switzerland. Perincek was found guilty of racial discrimination by a Swiss Police Court for having publicly denied the characterisation of genocide, without calling into question the existence of massacres and deportations of Armenians in 1915 in the Ottoman Empire, during various conferences in Switzerland in 2005. Perincek claims that the Swiss courts breached his freedom of expression.
