Southern Poverty Law Center

Just wondering what the general impression of the organization is. Are law student positions/internships with them considered "prestigious?" Would it be something that is respected by both PI orgs and firms?

I had a professor in undergrad whose husband was a freelance videographer and photographer, and he did some work with them. He went to a KKK rally and made a video of it I think. That's about all I know. It's not helpful, but nobody else was posting.

I met the guy who founded the organization and had dinner with him and several of their employees a few months ago. One of the girls who was working there had just graduated from U. Chicago, so I assume it is pretty "prestigious" in the sense that it's probably competitive. Apparently they are a pretty big deal though. They are a pretty left-leaning group, but my understanding is that they are generally very well respected by PI orgs and firms.

I won't pretend to be an expert or anything, but you can feel free to PM me if you have any questions (no promises I will be helpful at all).

Impressive and gratifying. How great must it feel to go to work every day and shut down Klan groups?

Thanks for the answers guys. Unfortunately, the specific project I'll be working on won't have anything to do with Klan groups :( but I'm sure it'll be fun nonetheless
