Richard Cohen is a graduate of Columbia University and the University of Virginia School of Law. He came to the Southern Poverty Law Center in 1986 as its legal director after practicing law in Washington, D.C., for seven years. Under his guidance, the SPLC won a series of landmark lawsuits against some of the nation's most violent white supremacist organizations. He also successfully litigated a wide variety of important civil rights actions—defending the rights of prisoners to be treated humanely, working for equal educational opportunities for all children, and bringing down the Confederate battle flag from the Alabama State Capitol. Prior to becoming SPLC president in 2003, Cohen served as its vice president for programs, which include the Intelligence Project and Teaching Tolerance. In 1997, the national legal magazine The American Lawyer selected him as one of 45 public sector lawyers "whose vision and commitment are changing lives."
