The University of Law (ULaw) has teamed up with the powerhouse that is Amal Clooney and her Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ) to roll out a new scholarship fund.

ULaw proudly announced the momentous partnership with the esteemed lawyer, unveiling an inspiring fund tailored to empower the next generation of human rights advocates.

In a video shared on ULaw’s official YouTube channel, Amal addressed the audience with her signature eloquence. Framed by the sumptuous backdrop of a room that whispered elegance (we’re all betting it’s her chic Lake Como pad) Amal was the epitome of grace. She donned a chic sleeveless navy blue top, replete with a tasteful collar and a contemporary front zipper, crafting a silhouette that was both commanding and elegant. Her coiffed glossy waves, effortlessly complemented the vital message she imparted.

In the video Amal explains, “This scholarship provides a fully funded place at University of Law, the largest provider of legal education in the United Kingdom. The recipient will have the opportunity to choose from a range of postgraduate law programs at any of the campuses across the United Kingdom or across the world to prepare for a career in human rights.”

The prestigious ‘Amal Clooney Scholarship for Human Rights Advocates’ is set to illuminate the path for dedicated human rights champions, offering an unparalleled opportunity to immerse themselves in postgraduate studies at one of the legal academia’s programmes, fully funded. This initiative seeks candidates with a passion for human rights advocacy, inviting them to become part of a movement that shapes the defenders of tomorrow.

Amal goes on to say, “I am so proud that this will support the lawyers of the future who are passionate about helping others who refuse to accept the status quo and who are determined to be agents of change.”

Alongside her renowned actor husband, George Clooney, she launched the Clooney Foundation for Justice in 2016, which aids victims of human rights infringements. Amal also mentioned the prestigious foundation she runs with her spouse in the video, saying, “I am a barrister and the founder along with my husband George of the Clooney Foundation for Justice. Our foundation provides free legal support to victims of atrocities all over the world.”

Amal is a luminary in the human rights legal sphere and a figurehead at the distinguished Doughty Street Chambers in London. Her illustrious career is peppered with high-stakes advocacy, from advising on the Syrian crisis to representing the former Maldivian president without charge, and even stepping into the legal fray for WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. Amal ended her video with the inspiring words, “I know that each scholarship will change one life, but I’m also confident that the recipient will go on to wage justice and in doing so change many more.”
