The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) has stated that it will implement the judgment of SC in letter and spirit announcing its intention to abide by the Supreme Court’s quashing of the National Law Admission Test (NLAT).
The University will be admitting students based on CLAT scores now and not on NLAT scores and the University has informed that refunds of amounts received for the exam will be made within the next 9-14 working days. A fee of Rs 75 will be retained however, as application processing charges.
The University’s decision to hold NLAT in lieu of CLAT after the latter test was postponed to September 28 this year had spilt over into tension between the university and other NLU-members of the Consortium. NLSIU had justified the conduct of NLAT citing its trimester system and as a measure to avoid a “zero year.”
The University has also emphasized that the School and its governing bodies will take necessary steps to welcome a new batch of students to experience NLSIU’s unique and transformational educational experience.
