The High Court of Delhi on Tuesday allowed the Delhi University to rely on marks of Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2022 for granting admission to its newly introduced five-year LLB course for the session starting this year.

The order was passed by the Division Bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Narula on a PIL seeking directions to DU to consider the marks obtained in the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) for admission to the law course, instead of CLAT.

Appearing for DU, Senior Advocate Pinky Anand contended that when the Bar Council of India (BCI) granted DU approval to have five-year law course, the CUET prospectus did not include this course.

The Central government and the University Grants Commission (UGC), meanwhile apprised the High Court that according to the National Education Policy as well as the 566th meeting of UGC, CUET was mandatory for admission into general degree courses and the universities have the autonomy to rely on CLAT, NEET and other similar exams for granting admission to professional courses.

The Bench noted that the major issue before it was whether it was only the CUET based on which admission in Central Universities could be granted or whether the varsities could rely on other exams for entrances as well.

The Court said that the matter required consideration and listed the same for hearing on November 23.
