A persistent professional and gentle intervener, Ruth Ambros is developing an extensive civil litigation practice serving First Nations and their members. Ruth has appeared before various levels of court in several provinces.
Ruth is a first-generation settler on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabek and Haudenosaunee from Central Europe. After a first career as a management consultant and a second raising a gaggle of kids, Ruth completed her legal studies at Osgoode Hall Law School in 2019 and was called to the bar in 2020.
During her studies, Ruth participated in Osgoode’s Intensive Program in Aboriginal Lands, Resources, and Government, as well as the Feminist Advocacy Intensive at the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, for which she received the Annie Macdonald Langstaff Prize. Ruth co-edited the Transnational Legal Theory Journal, participated in several moots, and won the Cassels Brock & Blackwell Price for Professionalism.
Ruth does her best thinking while preparing food - cooking, baking, canning - or knitting to a podcast or stimulating conversation.
