CLAT Exam 2020: CLAT 2020 Examination has been postponed due to CoronaVirus COVID 19 pandemic spread in the world. The exam has now been scheduled on May 24, 2020. The application deadline has also been extended to April 25. The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is a national level entrance exam for admissions to undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) law programmes offered by 22 National Law Universities around the country. CLAT is organized by the Consortium of National Law Universities consisting of the representative universities.

 

CLAT Exam 2020The Consortium of National Law Universities was established on 19th August, 2017 with the aim of improving the standard of legal education in the country and justice system through legal education with Prof. R. Venkata Rao, erstwhile Vice-Chancellor, NLSIU as President and Prof. Faizan Mustafa, Vice-Chancellor, NALSAR, as Vice-President. NLUs were created on the pattern of IIMs and IITs. NLUs have changed the face of legal education in India. Infact, India, is the only country in the world which has Universities for legal discipline alone. Today, we have 23 NLUs out of which 22 are admitting students through Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) (National Law University, Delhi having its own separate test).From 1987 to 2007, there were only seven NLUs each having its own test.
