Student Bar Association

The Student Bar Association of The Appalachian School of Law is governed by four officers, nine Senators, and four Honor Court Justices. Every ASL student is a member of the Student Bar Association by virtue of enrollment. The SBA serves the ASL student body in the formation of law school policy and student governance. In addition, the SBA organizes social events and community service events and facilitates the formation of new student organizations. The SBA plays an important role in serving as a liaison between the students and the faculty and administration. The SBA organizes the ASL Speaker Series, which brings attorneys, judges, and other persons to ASL to speak on topics related to the study of law and the legal profession. These events help broaden students’ awareness of current events and better prepare them for entry into the legal profession.
