GRUNDY, Va. — The Appalachian School of Law in Grundy has announced plans to downsize, capping enrollment at the school's original enrollment base, trim faculty positions and make other adjustments.

ASL Den Lucy McGough and Judge Keary Williams, chair of the ASL Board of Trustees, on Tuesday announced the school will return to a total enrollment of 150-160, the size it enjoyed 10 years ago when the school opened.

Williams said a smaller student body was more in keeping with ASL's mission and original design. Over the last four years enrollment had grown to 250 to 300.
