Qualification for Professional License

The Appalachian School of Law, upon completion of its program, grants a Juris Doctor degree. As a law school accredited by the American Bar Association, a Juris Doctor from the Appalachian School of Law is sufficient to meet the degree educational requirements for licensure as an attorney at law in all 50 states. Each state, in addition to a bar examination may, however, have additional requirements, educational or otherwise, beyond the Juris Doctor degree to become a licensed attorney. Current and prospective students should research the requirements for licensure as an attorney in each state in which they intend to practice prior to beginning their studies.
