Online Law School: Will I Need to Take the LSAT
Are you thinking about going to online law school in California? If so, you may be one of the many prospective students in the US now turning to distance learning to achieve a degree, and even an intensive one like a Juris Doctorate. Most of us lead hectic lives even without attending school, and you may be looking for a way to make education your priority but in ways that are more conducive to your lifestyle. But keep in mind that just as working at home can be every bit as rigorous and serious as going to an office—so can distance learning, with the classroom coming to you.
To attend online law school at California Desert Trial Academy College of Law, for example, you must pass the LSAT, be at least 18, and meet the following requirements also:
- Complete two years of undergraduate college work with 60 approved credits, an AA degree from a community college in California, or complete acceptable equivalency tests instead
- Complete the admissions application
- Complete comprehensive CDTA admissions application if qualifications are met
Online opportunities offer us so much today, and especially for taking classes and achieving new degrees, offering benefits like:
- The ability to structure a flexible structure
- Avoiding the expense of a commute, including wear and tear on your vehicle and travel time
- Working around other jobs and even primary careers
- Eliminating childcare expenses, and spend more time with your family
For many, the law degree may be the beginning of a new career, or a way to enhance a current one. Other students may have just graduated from a two- or four-year program and have set their sights on the law. Four years at California Desert Trial Academy College of Law, will include intensive training with 15 weeks in the fall semester and 14 weeks in the spring semester.
