A Columbia law student will be sipping champagne with professor Amal Clooney at Jean-Georges for the low price of $8,100.

According to sources, one of the items up for bid at Columbia Law School’s Public Interest Law Foundation auction on Thursday was lunch at the swanky French eatery with Clooney and human rights professor Sarah Cleveland.

We’re told that a first-year law student won the item, which was titled, “Right to food (and champagne!),” with a bid of $8,100.

The lunch is for up to six students, and we’re told the winning student is inviting her friends.

The proceeds from the auction go toward supporting students’ legal aid work.

Clooney has been a visiting professor at Columbia since 2015. She co-teaches a human rights course with Cleveland.

Columbia Law School did not immediately return our request for comment.
