Her family escaped Lebanon during the Lebanese Civil War when she was two years old and lived in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire.
Ramzi Alamuddin, a Lebanese Druze from the Alam al-Din dynasty town of Backline in the Chouf District, received an MBA from the American University of Beirut. In 1991, after the conclusion of the Lebanese Civil War, he returned to Lebanon.
Her mother, Bariaa (née Miknass), is a political writer and foreign editor for the pan-Arab newspaper al-Hayat. She is the creator of the public relations firm International Communication Experts, which is a part of a bigger firm specializing in celebrity guest bookings, publicity photography, and event marketing.
Clooney has three siblings from her father’s first marriage: one sister and two half-brothers.
In order to attend university, Clooney attended Dr. Challoner’s High School, a ladies’ grammar school in Little Chalfont, Buckinghamshire. She then studied at Oxford’s St Hugh’s College, where she was awarded an exhibition grant and the Shrigley Award. In 2000, she earned a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Jurisprudence.
She enrolled at New York University School of Law the next year to pursue a Master of Laws (LL.M) degree. She was a winner of the Jack J.

They married at Venice’s city hall (at Ca’ Farsetti) on 27 September 2014, after a high-profile wedding ceremony two days earlier in Venice. They were married by Clooney’s friend and former Rome mayor Walter Veltroni.
The wedding received wide media coverage. In October 2014, it was reported that the Clooneys had purchased the Mill House on an island in the River Thames in England’s Sonning Eye for around £10 million.
