Graduates of The University of Virginia’s College at Wise who want to pursue a law degree from the Appalachian School of Law will get preferential admission after officials from both institutions signed an agreement Nov. 7. The preferential admission agreement ensures that each UVa-Wise graduate who meets specific criteria is accepted as a student for graduate work in law at ASL. Chancellor Donna P. Henry and ASL Dean and Chief Executive Officer Lucy S. McGough signed the agreement in a ceremony in the Lila Vicars Smith House at UVa-Wise. The agreement highlights the missions of both institutions, which are to provide a quality education for students from the region, and to prepare graduates for leadership and service in their communities. Officials from both institutions said the preferential admissions program will have mutual benefits for both UVa-Wise and ASL. UVa-Wise graduates who seek ASL admission must meet general admission requirements set by the law school. For more information, contact ASL’s Admissions Office at 276-244-1245.
