Learn From Those Experienced
The California Desert Trial Academy’s (CDTA) unique learning platform emphasizes that students learn the soft skills, utilize internships, and connect with mentors. This education develops the practical experience to help graduates immediately gain success working as attorney-advocates. While there’s no substitute for personal experience, the next best thing is learning from someone with more experience than you. It’s a simple notion but one that has been truly tested by time – learn from those who are experienced.
The importance of learning from those around us cannot be overestimated. Making ourselves open to learning from others allows us to benefit from their experience so we can inherit their wisdom and knowledge. Learning from others cannot be done passively; it requires commitment and hard work.
These experiences provide essential practical skills and place individuals in the position to succeed. For attorneys, they can help students transition to attorneys soon than later when they start their legal practice. While not every law school places importance on learning from attorney mentors, CDTA believes that mentors provide invaluable benefits to graduates’ early success as practicing attorneys.
The practical knowledge to be gained from seasoned real-world professionals provides more knowledge than that of any law book. Mentors offer their experience working as an attorney while providing personal attitudes, methods, techniques, and ideas that allow students to gain their unique perspective of the legal profession.
CDTA students are privileged with the ability to access the valuable experience of the CDTA faculty and legal professionals that students meet and interact with at the CDTA College of Law. If you are interested in becoming an exceptional legal advocate, consider the benefits of an experienced mentor. Consider the California Desert Trial Academy.
