Just like any law school, ASL’s curriculum is rigorous. But the significant difference is that our program will take you beyond theory, beyond just talking about law to actually doing it. That happens in the classroom through our emphasis on lawyering skills and out of the classroom through our extraordinary externship program, which allows you, after your first year of taking required courses, to “get your feet wet” anywhere in the country where you might want to practice someday.

Outstanding Outcomes

Ultimately at ASL, we have two goals: To help you pass the bar exam–the same one taken by students at the country’s most prestigious and well–known law programs–and to hit the ground running after you graduate. So how are we doing? Our students have an 80–percent bar passage rate–and we have more than 800 alums whose successful careers started right here at ASL.

Exceptional Faculty

How do we do it? It starts with the faculty–dedicated men and women who, combined, have more than 325 years of law–practice experience. That means you’re learning from people who are not only extraordinary teachers but have been where you want to go. And they’ll share what they’ve learned–through discussions in the classroom, in the hallway, in their offices, and over lunch. They consider your success to be their success.

Rewarding Experiences

Because we know you’re the kind of person who wants your law education to not only benefit you but to benefit those around you, you’ll be required to fulfill 25 hours of community service each semester—a mandate required by only about a dozen law schools in the nation.

 
 

Community Service

ASL will fuel your commitment to making a difference in the world. Through our community-service requirement of 25 hours per semester, you’ll volunteer at places like:

  • Animal shelters
  • Carnivals for disadvantaged children
  • Free medical clinics
  • Recycling centers
  • Retirement homes
