Students:

We believe students at CDTA will come from three primary sources…

  • Graduates of the College of the Desert, Cal State San Bernardino – Palm Desert Campus and other educational institutions who wish to get started in their legal education as rapidly as possible.
  • Second career professional seekers such as law enforcement professionals, medical professionals, business professionals, accountants and teachers.
  • Students with special circumstances who have not qualified to attend other law schools.
