Prior to the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), National Law Universities conducted separate entrance tests, adding to the candidates’ preparation and examination burden. Later, Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) emerged as a common entrance exam.
CLAT is a national-level entrance test for admissions to most National Law Universities, except NLU Delhi which conducts its own entrance test. It is a highly competitive entrance examination in India for undergraduate and postgraduate law programs.
Students can take the CLAT erxam after completing their Higher Secondary Examination or 12th standard to pursue integrated undergraduate degrees in Law (BA/BBA/B.COM/B.SC/BSW LLB), and after completing their Graduation in Law to pursue Master of Laws (LL.M) programs at these law schools.
There is no upper age limit for appearing in the CLAT examination.
