AILET topper from D'gere to join NLSUI

The All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) and the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) which has seen an increase in the number of takers over the years, has a tier-II city topper this year.

Ashwij S Ramaiah, a student from Davangere, who topped the AILET exam and stood third in the CLAT exam, will join the National Law School of India University, Bangalore.

Felicitating civil service toppers from the State recently, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda had remarked that “we are living in an age of tier-II and III cities” as many successful candidates are emerging from these places. In what reflects a similar trend, Ashwij, has topped his peers in both the national law entrance tests.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Ashwij said he analysed his skills as early as in Class VIII and matching his skills and areas of interest he decided to pursue law.

“I have always been a good orator. Hence I felt I could do well in this profession,” said the student. Ashwij felt that the popularity of Law courses, particularly those offered by national universities was increasing among students.

“Once you graduate from a national law school, job opportunities are plenty with handsome pay matching that of any B-school graduate.”
