The Executive Committee (EC) of the Consortium of National Law Universities (NLUs) has announced that the much-delayed Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 will now be conducted on August 22, 2020. The CLAT Exam was earlier announced to be held on May 10 but was postponed to May 24 and further to June 21.
This year’s exam will be a computer-based online test held at exam centres across the country.
The consortium has also considered giving candidates a chance to withdraw their registration if they feel health risk due to Coronavirus. In such a case, CLAT 2020 registration will be refunded to the candidates after deducting nominal processing charges.
The last date to submit CLAT 2020 application form has been extended to July 10, 2020. Already registered candidates need to select or re-confirm their test centres.
The notification further states,
“The Consortium shall issue detailed guidance with respect to the protocols and modalities of the computer-based, online, centre-based mechanism of the CLAT 2020 for all candidates to aid their preparations for the examination. The Consortium will also conduct mock exams for all registered candidates to build familiarity with the test application and interface.”
CLAT is an entrance gateway for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes offered by 22 top national law universities.
