Biographical or historical data
The Appalachian School of Law was originally conceived by Joseph E. Wolfe, an attorney in Wise County, Virginia, who believed a law school was necessary to serve the central appalachian region of Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. A steering committee was formed in the Fall of 1994. A board of trustees was formed 5 January 1995 and established the school as a not for profit corporation. In February 1996, the board of trustees accepted a proposal from the Buchanan County, Virginia, board of supervisors to locate in Grundy, Virginia. The Appalachian School of Law opened its doors to its first class 11 August 1997. In October 1999 the State Council of Higher Education authorized the school to award the juris doctor degree, while the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners and the West Virginia Board of Law Examiners approved the school's charter class to take the bar exams in those states. The Appalachian School of Law's first class graduated 12 May 2000. In February 2001, the school received provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association.
