CLAT to roll back to offline mode from 2019

PUBLISH DATE 20th October 2018

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) will be rolled back to the offline mode from 2019. The decision was taken at the fourth meeting of the Consortium of National Law Universities, which is headed by Prof Faizan Mustafa, vice-chancellor of Nalsar, Hyderabad on Thursday.

According to a press release issued by Nalsar, the decision was taken in view of technical glitches experienced in the last few years in conducting online CLAT exam. From 2019, students will again have to appear for the exam in the paper-pen mode.

“It was also decided that as and when the number of candidates taking up CLAT drastically increases or when admission to law colleges in the entire country would be based only on the CLAT score, the feasibility of online test will be re-considered,” read the press release.

The consortium decided to have a permanent website of CLAT and establish a CLAT secretariat that would function throughout the year from its permanent office in Bengaluru.

In another major decision, the consortium resolved that in the LLM admission test, some subjective portion would also be included in 2019 post-graduate CLAT. The details of the subjective portion would be worked out by the CLAT executive committee. “In addition to NLUs, CLAT will be conducted in other centres/cities as well depending upon the number of candidates. The decision in this respect too would be taken by CLAT convenor and executive committee,” read the release.

“To improve the quality of the question paper of CLAT the consortium resolved to create a question bank to which experts from all the NLUs and other institutions would be asked to contribute,” read the press release.

The consortium also decided to hold a workshop in collaboration with National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and University Grants Commission on evolving objective parameters for the accreditation of NLUs by NAAC and other accreditation agencies.
