The Supreme Court on Friday allowed the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) to conduct separate entrance exams on Saturday, 12 September. However, the court also made it clear that the results would not be declared without the approval of the court nor would there be any admission.
Petition filed against organizing NLAT
The Supreme Court was hearing a petition filed by former vice-chancellor of NLSIU, Professor Venkata Rao, who challenged the decision to conduct the National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT). The petition said that this action by NLSIU has created an unprecedented uncertainty and also put undue burden on the students, which is no longer clear about the future program.
Examination will be held on September 12
According to a notification issued by the university, if NLSIU is unable to complete admission before the end of September 2020, this year will inevitably turn into a zero year. This time the online registration process for the examination started from 3 September and closed on 10 September. The consortium of law colleges has 23 colleges and has scheduled the CLAT 2020 exam on 28 September, while NLSIU has fixed the NLAT 2020 exam on 12 September.
