PASOK sa kasabihang, “Those who can’t do, teach” si Amal Clooney, ang asawa ni George Clooney, dahil magtuturo siya sa Columbia Law School.
“It is an honor to be invited as a visiting professor at Columbia Law School alongside such a distinguished faculty and talented student pool,” pahayag ng British barrister. “I look forward to getting to know the next generation of human rights advocates studying here.”
Si Amal, na espesyalista sa international law at karapatang pantao, ay nakatakdang magturo bilang senior fellow sa Law School’s Human Rights Institute.
Nagsilbing senior adviser ni Kofi Annan si Amal Clooney noong siya ang kinatawan ng United Nations sa Syria, at ipinakilala ang WikiLeaks founder na si Julian Assange sa extradition proceedings.
“We are privileged to have an international human rights practitioner of Amal Clooney’s stature join our faculty. Her extensive experience advocating before U.N. and regional human rights mechanisms complements our existing offerings and will enrich the experience of our students,” pahayag ni Professor Sarah H. Cleveland.
Ayon naman kay Professor Sarah Knuckey, na magtuturo kasabay ni Amal: “Amal Clooney’s dedication to public service and her diverse human rights litigation experience will inspire and guide our students as they learn how to use the law to advance social justice. We are thrilled to welcome her to Columbia Law School’s community of international law scholars, practitioners, and students.” – Yahoo News/Celebrity
