After a whirlwind of red carpet events, Amal Clooney is back to work in London.

In yet another style lesson in dressing down, the UK-Lebanese human rights lawyer was decked out in a spotted black peplum suit, low-key jewelry and her signature big sunglasses.

Clooney was part of a team defending 2000 Chagos Islanders who were evicted from their homes in the 1960 to make way for a US Air Force base on the island of Diego Garcia,The Daily Mail reported.

Clooney and her team faced five UK Supreme Court judges to appeal against a 2008 ruling denying the Chagossian islanders the right to return to Diego Garcia, arguing that crucial information was withheld.

The remote island nation in the Indian Ocean is strategically important as a base supporting US military operations from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to The Telegraph, the US acknowledged in 2008 that the Chagos Islands base had also been used for clandestine rendition flights of terrorist suspects.

Amal Clooney married American actor and director George Clooney in a star-studded ceremony in Venice last year.

She divides her time between homes in New York, where Amal was teaching at Columbia University Faculty of Law, Lake Como, Italy, and the UK, where Amal is still a practicing barrister at Doughty Street Chambers.

The celebrity couple are currently renovating a mansion in Berkshire.
