New Delhi: The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) said yesterday that no member of the university, including the vice-chancellor or any member of the staff, will participate in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020.

A press release issued by Sarasu Esther Thomas, Registrar of the university, stated:

“… given the statements of the consortium in its press release of 6 September, NLSIU, and its vice-chancellor, have no alternative but to completely disassociate from CLAT 2020.”

The NLSIU further stated that the move comes after the consortium of the National Law Universities had stated that if NLSIU decides to go ahead with their independent test for this year’s admission, they cannot remain associated with CLAT and the secretariat of the consortium may be shifted out of NLSIU.


Disputing the Consortium’s stance on this aspect, NLSIU has asserted that it has not violated any Consortium bylaws in deciding to hold a separate law entrance exam this year.

The university has also clarified that they have not received any communication from the consortium and only learnt about the decisions taken in the recent consortium meetings from the press.

The NLSIU further asserts it had raised concerns over the delay in the conduct of CLAT 2020 several times with the Consortium.

The university will conduct NLAT – an online home-based test for its B.A., LL.B programme as well as the LL.M programme for the 2020-2021 academic year on September 12 – the CLAT for admissions to the remaining 21 NLUs is slated to be held on September 28.
