Appalachian School of Law is in Grundy, Va., in the extreme western region of the state, making it more accessible to students in Kentucky, West Virginia and eastern Tennessee than those in the central part of its own state.

And the location was strategic: It opened as a stand-alone law school in 1997 to serve residents of the entire Appalachian region.

The school prides itself on providing students with a close-knit community, where everyone is invested in the student's success in school, passing the bar exam, and ensuring a professional career. 

Appalachian School of Law also strives to deliver a practical education. Students take an externship class and then participate in a six-week externship program under the guidance of an experienced attorney or judge during the summer between their first and second years in law school.

In their second years, students take a dispute resolution class, which has become an academic focal point for the law school in the last few years, as this area of law has grown professionally. Third-year students are required to take a comprehensive class that prepares students for the bar exam, and students must complete 25 hours of community service per semester in order to graduate.
