CDTA: Never Too Far Away For Any Student
The California Desert Trial Academy (CDTA) is located at 45-290 Fargo Street, Indio, California, in the Inland Empire. Just ten years ago, any resident of the Coachella Valley interested in becoming an attorney-advocate would have to travel quite a distance to attend class and receive a legal education. In 2020, this has changed because of the presence of the CDTA. However, anyone who lives a significant distance from the closest law school can take advantage of CDTA’s distance learning program, as well as those who live closer in Indio and its surrounding areas.
The CDTA brings legal education to your home, especially if you have regular family- or employment-related responsibilities that make daily travel away from home or work difficult. The CDTA recognizes that many working adults, caregivers, and stay-at-home parents are unable to change their normal routine to attend law school, especially when attendance is typically required in the morning and afternoon during the standard eight-hour workday.
Distance learning can make class attendance less demanding, as well as potentially expanding the pool of individuals who might consider pursuing a law degree. Distance learning is a valuable mechanism that CDTA utilizes to assist those who cannot commit to a regular schedule. In pursuit of this goal, CDTA uses modern technology to provide unique, online educational tools to its students.
CDTA’s commitment places it firmly on the cutting edge of modern, progressive 21st Century legal education. The use of distance learning in legal education is rapidly increasing as law schools other than CDTA have now undertaken steps to offer this form of learning to their students. While these law schools have been slow to incorporate distance learning into their curriculums, the CDTA has implemented new, innovative ways of teaching students how to be attorney-advocates for almost a decade.
The CDTA Student Portal allows students to stream classes online, giving them the opportunity for live interaction with professors and fellow students. The Student Portal also gives students access to recorded live classes 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week. This is just one example of how the CDTA allows students to utilize distance learning to earn a law degree on their time and schedule at their convenience.
The ability to connect with students in the digital age and supplement classroom learning through the internet is an immensely valuable tool. At the California Desert Trial Academy, we are continuously seeking ways to better utilize online resources for the benefit of CDTA’s growing student body. Upon admission to the Bar, CDTA graduates are fully educated, trained, and coached to represent their clients on their first day of practice with skills that are far beyond their contemporaries from other law schools.
The California Desert Trial Academy focuses on providing an academic experience that emphasizes a practical approach to becoming a lawyer. We believe this is the most efficient and expedient pathway to a successful and rewarding legal career. At CDTA, we train, educate, and develop students to be exceptional attorneys and trial advocates. Call us today at (760) 342-0900 or find out more online here.
