That means when you contact us, we'll take the time to respond. We'll be here every step of the way -- whether you request an information packet, want to visit ASL, need more information about tuition and costs, want to know about financial aid and scholarships, or want to apply.
ASL isn't just a law school. It's a family. Cooperation, not competition, sets the tone here. You'll have a community of support that includes the faculty, who will take the time to know you and mentor you, and the staff, who will be committed to meeting your needs, whatever they might be.
We offer the rigorous curriculum you'd expect from law school. But we'll also work hard to prepare you to graduate and pass the bar exam so you're ready to take what you've learned and make a difference as a lawyer -- and a leader -- in your community. In addition to the Juris Doctor degree you receive upon successful completion of your law school experience, you will also receive a Juris Master degree upon successful completion of your 3rd full semester of law school.
Life in Grundy, Va., offers the peace and quiet you need to focus on your studies. Lush mountains and scenic views offer opportunities for recreation when you need to get away from your books. Several cities, including Asheville, N.C., Knoxville, Tenn., and Lexington, Ky., are close by for weekend trips.
Flexible Start & Finish Dates
We want to be there when you need us, and allow you to start your career sooner should you desire. Starting in 2014, ASL will offer both a fall and spring admission cycle, allowing students to start law school in either January or August. At the time of enrollment, students can choose between a traditional 3-year curriculum and an accelerated 2.5-year curriculum.
