Bio for Albert Koehl, Staff Lawyer

Albert Koehl - Headshot (Aug 2012)

Staff lawyer Albert Koehl believes that environmental protection and social justice go hand in hand: the poor are the first to suffer from harms like contaminated water, air pollution, drought and heat waves. 

Areas of focus
  • Energy
  • Climate change
  • Migratory birds
  • Species at risk
  • Transportation

Albert pays close attention to energy and climate change issues and recently appeared before the National Energy Board to oppose Enbridge’s plan to begin transporting oilsands bitumen across Ontario and Quebec. 

He’s also lead counsel on two private prosecutions against major building developers for the deaths of thousands of migratory birds killed in window strikes. 

Albert is an adjunct professor in natural resources law at Osgoode Hall Law School and joined Ecojustice in 2001. Previously, he served with the United Nations Truth Commission in Guatemala as an investigator and with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment as a prosecutor. 

Albert is also an advocate for cycling and pedestrian safety in his community. He recently participated as an expert stakeholder in the Ontario Chief Coroner’s Cycling Death Review and is the author of Road Follies, a comprehensive report for groups advocating cleaner, healthier and safer road travel.
