George Clooney's Fiancee Amal Alamuddin Starts Jaw Dropping New Job

It appears that getting engaged to Hollywood celebrity George Clooney isn't going to impact lawyer Amal Alamuddin in any signficant way. Don't expect her to start lunching at The Grill with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. Don't expect her to start getting pedicures with Kris Jenner and shopping on Rodeo Drive with Gwyneth Paltrow. If George Clooney wanted someone totally not in his glam world, well, he got her. Because wait til you hear how Amal plans to get back to work after her whirlwind engagement to Clooney!

Amal, a well-respected humanitarian lawyer, is representing former Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi's spy chief, Abdullah al-Senussi. The chief is accused of torturing and killing god only knows how many people during decades of being Gaddafi's right-hand man in Libya. He is blamed for killing 1,200 inmates in a Tripoli prison. He was convicted in France for bombing a French airline; and Scottish police believe he masterminded the 1988 Pan Am bombing over Lockerbie.

He has been charged with crimes against humanity.

Makes you wonder what the heck Amal is doing representing a guy like this! She also represents WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is at least a bit more likeable. But Amal has a reputation for taking on tough clients -- she has already worked as an advisor to Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, the king of Bahrain, who human rights groups says killed and tortured demonstrators in his country.

Well, whether or not Amal is defending a "good" man is besides the point -- defense lawyers often take on clients who are anything but. But it sure is a long way from Stacy Keibler, isn't it? This is one Clooney babe who it's pretty safe to say will not be appearing on Dancing with the Stars.

This could totally become a new Hollywood trend, this whole dedicated playboy stops dating pin-ups, meets intellectual, and suddenly gets married thing. I'm just waiting for Leonardo DiCaprio to get rid of these Victoria's Secret models and finally notice that cute neurosurgeon who lives around the corner.

Do you think that Amal and Clooney will discuss Abdullah al-Senussi over dinner?

No, I don't, since there will be privilege between lawyer and client.

John Adams was asked to defend the 8 British soldiers charged with killing civilians during the boston massacre. he immediately accepted. he did so bc he believed this nation was one created out of laws, not men. every attorney takes an oath to defend their clients vigorously. i would not respect one who refused to perform their duty.

She is no bimbo. She's got her own career. She is not a sponge. I think those reasons are what he found so sexy. There are plenty of Stepford wives in Hollywood. Good for Mr. Clooney for figuring out smart is sexy.

This woman is an anti-Semite Muslim. This idea that she and Clooney are "human rights" anything is a joke. They are all about the destruction of America and Israel.  This "match" is bad news for American poltically, and Clooney will use what "pull" he has in Hollwood to get the minions to see that it's "all good". 

Michelle Blease

Oh they'll discuss him...and they can best use him to destroy the west. Hollywood people are REALLY gullible.

I don't get it she defends human rights violators and he has satellites watching and trying to gather incriminating evidence and monitor activity in Sudan. A defense attorney in high profile cases isn't assigned they freely choose and although I believe everyone is entitled to defense, defending such horrible persons I would be morally opposed but I guess someone has to do the dirty work.

I  don't think she could ever be a friend of mine, judging on who she's set to represent... yes, I know, everyone's presumed innocent and all that ........... but................

Give us some proof, Michelle Blease. Just because she speaks Arabic doesn't mean she's anti-Semitic. Not everyone approves of what Israel is doing doing to Palestine. That doesn't make them anti-Semitic. It just makes them aware of the human rights of Palestinians. As far as who she defends, that's her job. Get over it.

Yes this is a long way from Stacey Kiebler. Stacey Kiebler is at worst,a harmless bimbo, but more likely a sweet young lady who never hurt anyone. Meanwhile Amal defends murderers and filth like Julian Assange. Plus she's not half as pretty as Stacey. So I'd say this is a definite step down for Clooney.
