SELC is renowned for its staff, whose abilities and excellent credentials are matched only by their passion for protecting our region’s health and environment.  Finding and mentoring the next generation of exceptional environmental lawyers and leaders remains at the core of SELC’s mission. 

SELC prides itself on collegiality, teamwork, and mutual respect among its staff and board.  We seek to bring these same values to our work in partnership with organizations, communities, and people of all backgrounds that share our mission to protect the environment of the South.  The South has a rich natural diversity and an equally rich cultural diversity.  To better fulfill its mission, SELC is committed to broadening the diversity of its staff.  We believe this will strengthen our organization and our effectiveness in responding to the many environmental challenges affecting the South and its people.
