Whoever the website or NALP specifies as the recruiting contact. Typically for larger firms there's a legal recruiting director for an office or region.

Have fun with the inevitable firm recruiting website vs. NALP discrepancies/forks/issues/ambiguities.

Send to both. Are you worried about the extra 44 cents for the stamp? If anything, it shows you are serious about working for the firm/entity and also ensures your contact has your resume in hand so s/he can walk over to the hiring partner and put in a word for you.
