NLSIU to implement SC’s verdict in letter and spirit.
22nd September 2020
On Monday, the Supreme Court quashed the University's decision to hold its own entrance exam i.e. the NLAT in lieu of CLAT for NLSIU admissions this year. In line with the Supreme Court's verdict, the NLSIU will be admitting students based on CLAT scores but not on NLAT scores, States the University's press release. However the law school announced its decision to conduct its own entrance test for admissions to its undergraduate and graduate programmes, it has been subjected to harsh criticism particularly on account the exams technical requirements and the unexpected nature of its announcement amid the pandemic. Till the announcement of the NLAT, the university admitted students through the common Law Admission Test (CLAT), supervised by the CLAT consortium. The Supreme Court today quashed the examination and directed NLSIU to take in new entrants through the CLAT for the upcoming academic session.
