After graduating from NYU, she joined the litigation department of Sullivan & Cromwell in New York and practiced U.S. and international law there for three years. Alamuddin is an accomplished barrister who specializes in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law for the Doughty Street Chambers firm in London. She has represented WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, in his fight against extradition by Sweden and Ukraine's ex-prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, in challenging her detention before the European Court of Human Rights. She also has been appointed to numerous U.N. commissions and is an advisor to former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Syria. She is trilingual, fluent in English, French, and Arabic and focuses much of her attention on the Middle East. Although Alamuddin has spent the majority of her life outside of her homeland, she has remained connected to her Arab roots and has worked hard to empower herself and others. Epsilon Alpha Sigma is captivated by all of Alamuddin’s achievements throughout her life and we are blessed to have Alamuddin as an example to the ladies of EAΣ, some of which aspire to be human rights lawyers. We proudly support Amaluddin’s future professional endeavors and send her many positive wishes as she moves forward.
