For 27 years, the Southern Environmental Law Center has leveraged the power of the law to protect the environment of the Southeast—the fastest growing region of the U.S. Working in all three branches of government and with more than 100 partner groups, this nonprofit organization shapes, implements, and enforces the laws and policies that determine the quality of the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the landscapes and communities you love.
SELC has a highly credentialed team of almost 60 attorneys, many of whom have been with us for 15 years or more. Our organization has three core offices, five satellite offices, and a Capitol Hill office. We do not charge clients or partners for our services, but rely instead on charitable gifts from individuals, families, and foundations.
