CLAT, a highly competitive national entrance exam, is conducted for admission to law programs at various universities in India. The online exam assesses proficiency in legal concepts, English, reasoning, math, and general awareness with 150 multiple-choice questions in two hours. Eligibility requires a minimum 45% (general) or 40% (SC/ST) in 10+2, with age limits of 20 for undergraduates and 22 for postgraduates. Accepted by 22 law universities, including prestigious ones like National Law School of India University and National Law University, CLAT opens doors to diverse legal careers and serves as a gateway to advanced law studies. In essence, it’s crucial for aspiring legal professionals.
Before the inception of the CLAT exam, each National Law University (NLU) conducted its individual entrance test. Aspiring students had to prepare and take the specific entrance exam for the NLU they aimed to join. For example, to secure admission to NLU Lucknow, candidates had to appear for Lucknow NLU’s specific entrance exam. If a candidate wished to apply to multiple NLUs, they had to take the respective exams for each institution.
Out of the 23 National Law Universities in the country, NLU Delhi stands as the sole institution that does not accept CLAT scores for entrance. Instead, it administers its own distinct entrance exam known as the All India Law Entrance Test (AILET).
In the previous year, NLSIU had expressed its intent to conduct a separate entrance exam named the National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT). However, this initiative was not accepted by the Supreme Court.
