About Appalachian School of Law

Appalachian School of Law (ASL) exists to provide opportunity for people from Appalachia and beyond to realize their dreams of practicing law and bettering their communities. We attract a qualified, diverse and dedicated student body, many of whom will remain in the region after graduation and serve as legal counselors, advocates, judges, mediators, community leaders, and public officials. We offer a nationally recruited, diverse, and well-qualified faculty, a rigorous program for the professional training of lawyers and a comprehensive law library. The program emphasizes professional responsibility, dispute resolution, and practice skills. The ASL community is an exciting, student-centered environment that emphasizes honesty, integrity, fairness, and respect for others. We also emphasize community service and provide a resource for people, the bar, courts and other institutions of the region.

Campus information

"Compact" is a good way to describe ASL's campus. Unlike a law school located at a large university, ASL is easy to navigate, so you can spend more time studying instead of finding your classes.

Our modern campus has four buildings:

  • Main academic building - this mostly wireless facility houses an appellate courtroom/auditorium, trial courtroom, seminar rooms, student mailroom, the Lion's Lounge, and faculty and staff offices
  • Law library - this extensively remodeled, nearly 25,000-square-foot library includes seminar classes and group study rooms
  • Student Organization House - this is home to offices for student organizations, including the Student Bar Association, and a coffee shop
  • Booth Center - this three-story, 58,000-square-foot facility is shared with Southwest Virginia Community College

Appalachian School of Law (ASL) is located in Grundy, Virginia. The campus is surrounded by mountains and is located along the banks of the Levisa Fork River. Life in Grundy is peaceful, providing a quiet location for students to focus on their law education.


Appalachian School of Law (ASL) does not offer on-campus housing, so most students live in the town of Grundy and the surrounding area. A list of housing options is available through our Office of Student Services.
