At Appalachian School of Law, building exceptional lawyers, who are also exceptional citizens, is a hallmark of our academic program. ASL is so passionate about community service that our students are required to complete 25 hours of service each semester.
During their first semester, students satisfy this requirement by taking the mandatory Introduction to Community Service class, which meets once per week.
