The Appalachian School of Law (ASL) is a fully-accredited private law school on a four building campus in Grundy, Virginia, a small town near the convergence of Virginia, Kentucky, and West Virginia. The school offers a three-year Juris Doctor degree, and enrolls approximately 370 full-time students.[1] The law school was founded in 1994 and it admitted its first class of students in August 1997. ASL was started and brought to Buchanan County, Virginia as a tool of economic development for the region. The school is fully accredited by the American Bar Association. ASL is notable for its focus to community service and leadership, emphasizing professional responsibility and alternative dispute resolution in its curriculum and requiring students to complete 25 hours of community service per semester in order to graduate. Each student is also required to complete an externship before graduation. ASL was also the site of a triple homicide that took place on January 16, 2002.

History

The Atrium at ASL, circa 2002.
The Atrium at ASL, circa 2002.

ASL traces its roots back to 1993 when Norton, Virginia lawyer Joe Wolfe came up with the idea to create a law school in Central Appalachia. His idea was well received by local business leaders and a steering committee was founded in 1994 and grew to eighty members. The committee surveyed lawyers and found that legal education needed to emphasize professional responsibility and alternative dispute resolution as these pillars of law school were becoming more important in today's law practice. The committee gained permission of the Virginia General Assembly to start a law school in 1995 and continued to secure endorsements from local civic associations and industrial development authorities. Buchanan County, Virginia approached the committee in 1996 and offered the grounds and buildings of the former Grundy Elementary and Intermediate Schools to which the steering committee accepted.[2] Image File history File linksMetadata Size of this preview: 800 × 600 pixel Image in higher resolution (1280 × 960 pixel, file size: 329 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) I, the creator of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. ...

Buchanan County brought ASL to Grundy in order to revitalize a town that had been in a steady economic decline since the town's Flood of 1977. ASL has brought a positive economic impact on its home town, including spurring construction of rental homes and the opening of additional businesses in the area. ASL has become a success story for the concept of higher education as an economic development tool.[3] The school has brought in $12 million per year to the local economy.[4] ASL's economic success spurred the conception and implementation of the University of Appalachia College of Pharmacy which was founded in 2003 and opened its doors in 2005.[5] Buchanan County is a county located in the U.S. state — officially, Commonwealth — of Virginia. ...

January 2002 campus shooting

On January 16, 2002, ASL Dean Anthony Sutin, Professor Thomas Blackwell, and 1L student Angela Dales were shot and killed by disgruntled student Peter Odighizuwa, 43, of Nigeria. When Odighizuwa exited the building, he was subdued by two students armed with personal firearms. At trial, Odighizuwa was found mentally competent, pled guilty to the murders to avoid the death penalty, and was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison.[6] The Appalachian School of Law shooting occurred on January 16, 2002, at the Appalachian School of Law, an American Bar Association accredited private law school in Grundy, Virginia, United States. ... is the 16th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Campus

The Law Library, 2002.

The campus of ASL currently consists of three buildings, the main academic building, the Student Organization House, and the law library. The law school also uses the Booth Hall reception room as a classroom, as the Southwest Virginia Community College occupies all the classrooms.

The main academic building was created from the town's former high school (and junior high school) and gymnasium complex; these buildings were joined and extensively remodeled and expanded as part of a $1 million[10] award-winning architectural project.[11] The main building contains an appellate courtroom (which doubles as the auditorium for large events), a trial courtroom, five seminar rooms, student mailroom, the Lion's Lounge, and faculty and staff offices. Most rooms are wired for internet access.[12]


The two-story law library is adjacent to the main building. The building has 24,780 square feet (2,302 m²) and has facilities for seminar classes and group study rooms. The library contains over 196,000 volumes. Once the former Grundy Elementary School, this building has also been extensively remodeled and features individual and group study areas, a computer lab, and both wireless and wired internet access.[13]


The student organization house, located across Slate Creek from the main campus, houses offices for student organizations including the Student Bar Association, Moot Court, and the Law Journal. A privately owned coffee shop operates out of this building during the school year.[12]


A fourth campus building, Booth Hall, has recently opened. Booth Hall is situated behind and to the rear of the main academic building and law library. The building will have 58,000 square feet (5,400 m²) of space on three floors. Thirty three parking spaces will be situated on the first floor. Additional classrooms, including one that seats 150 students, computer lab, student lounges, and a conference room will be included in the new building. The building is estimated to be completed in 2008 and will house the school's Business Office and President's Office. The building will also house facilities for Southwest Virginia Community College, which will share classroom space with ASL.[14] Southwest Virginia Community College, SVCC as it is known to local residents, is located outside of Richlands, Virginia, on the border of Tazewell and Russell counties. ...

Students at Appalachian complete the traditional law school curriculum as required by the American Bar Association (ABA); however, the school distinguishes itself from almost all of the other 192 ABA accredited law schools in the country, as its students are required to volunteer 25 hours each semester on community service projects, ranging from dispute resolution training to humane society management. Only 11 other law schools have similar mandatory programs.[15] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (1280x960, 326 KB) Photo of the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy, Virginia. ...

ASL offers a Pre-Admission Summer Opportunity (PASO) programs for students who have the potential to become good lawyers and law students but whose LSAT's and GPA's do not necessarily reflect their skills and talents. The program lasts four weeks, three of which are independent home study, the final week is the on-campus lecture and final exam. The top scorers on the final exam may be offered admission to the fall's first year class.[16]


First year students arrive one week before the academic year starts to partake in a one credit course called Introduction to Law which covers the basic skills needed in order to succeed in law school. Students also register for classes and finalize their financial aid needs then.[17]


First year students cover legal foundation courses: Torts (4 credits), Contracts (6 credits), Property (6 credits), Civil Procedure (5 credits), Criminal Law (3 credits) and Legal Process (6 credits). Legal Process teaches students legal research and writing. First-year students also take an orientation course to the community service program in the first semester and an additional legal research course in the second semester. First-year students may not take any electives.[18] Additionally, all first-year students are required to complete a 200-hour unpaid externship over the summer before their second-year. This requirement is usually met by students working as judicial clerks, interns in prosecutor and defense offices, state and federal governmental agencies, and private practices. Placements have included state supreme courts, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Department of Justice. The school provides assistance in locating and obtaining these positions.[19] Second year students cover additional legal foundation courses: Constitutional Law (6 credits), Evidence (4 credits), Professional Responsibility (3 credits), and Secured Transactions (3 credits). Students also cover Trusts and Estates (3 credits) and Business Associations (3 credits), and are allowed to take electives, such as Appellate Advocacy.

Alternative dispute resolution

ASL is distinguished by its requirement that all second-year students complete a mandatory Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) class. The school has also held ADR training in local schools; this program drew national attention, particularly from former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, who has publicly congratulated the school on this effort.[20] Students are given an overview of different types of conflict resolutions, particularly mediation, negotiation, and arbitration. Ethical issues are explored in addition to legal and policy ramifications. Students learn the strengths and weaknesses of each method of dispute resolution and learn which methods are appropriate for certain situations.[21] Students also have the option of taking additional courses in their second and third years to earn certification for mediation under the "Lawyer as a Problem Solver" Certificate Program. Students must complete basic law school procedure courses, two ADR focused courses, and an additional problem solving skills course.[22] ASL offers two courses to fulfill this requirement: certified civil mediation, and advanced negotiation. The school has two faculty which solely teach alternative dispute resolution related courses.[23] This article or section is in need of attention from an expert on the subject. ...

The Senate consists of three elected senators for the first year, second year, and third year classes. The Executive Branch consists of the Student Body President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, plus any committees that the President appoints to assist in his or her endeavors.

Several people injured when a gunman went on a deadly rampage at the Appalachian School of Law in 2002 sued the school Thursday, claiming it failed to keep the campus safe from the man who is charged in the shootings.
The lawsuits allege that the law school was negligent in protecting the students and faculty from Odighizuwa, who was known to be prone to outbursts, said E. Brent Bryson, an attorney for the three women.
Odighuizuwa is accused of killing law school Dean Anthony Sutin, professor Thomas Blackwell and student Angela Dales and injuring the three students at the school in Grundy, a tiny mountain community in the coalfields of southwest Virginia.
