CLAT held amidst foolproof security

Entrance test had been postponed


Conducted by National Academy for Legal Studies and Research University (NALSAR), Hyderabad, the two-hour examination was also held simultaneously in 16 centres across India. The CLAT is the route to gain admission to both the undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

NLSIU Vice-Chancellor Prof R Venkata Rao told Deccan Herald that the examinations were held amidst foolproof security. “It was a success. A total of 764 students appeared in the Bangalore centre alone, for the UG programme. Overall, 13,000 students took the test across the country for the LLB course, while close to 1,800 appeared for the LLM course. “We had 67 Law graduates write the test for the LLM programme here. NLSIU being the first autonomous Law university in the country has the distinction of having the top 50 ranks of the CLAT joining us,” said Prof Rao.

The CLAT results are expected to be announced on June 10. The centralised admission process will be held thereafter on July 1, 2 and 3 for the UG programme, and on July 4 for the PG course. The classes will commence on June 10. The test was slated to be held on May 17. It was postponed after the question papers were reportedly found leaked.
