The Southern Poverty Law Center desires diverse, experienced candidates with the character, capabilities, and commitment for our challenging mission. Applicants are encouraged to apply for positions that fit their needs and abilities.

Positions include full-time and part-time employment, legal internships, and two-year fellowships. The SPLC does not offer a formal internship program for college undergraduates.

After an initial review by our Human Resources department, resumes and materials are forwarded to the appropriate departmental supervisor to be further reviewed before preliminary interviews are scheduled.

The SPLC is an equal opportunity employer. We believe everyone has something important to contribute. Respecting individual differences is an integral part of our culture, and we endeavor to make our differences work for us to achieve our mission.
