The Delhi High Court today dismissed a petition seeking directions to conduct the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 as a home-based online test in view of the pandemic situation due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Like other exams in the time of Covid-19, the National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT) 2020, meant for admission to National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru, has been in the midst of controversy. It was challenged in different courts and criticised over social media.
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.
The Consortium of National Law Universities in a meeting held on June 29 has decided that Common Law Admission Test (CLAT 2020) shall be conducted through a computer-based, online, centre-based test to be held on Saturday August 22, 2020.
