sushmitha M 27th Mar, 2020


To get admission in VIT Law School, you must have a minimum of 60 % in your 12th. It considers  CLAT, LSAT & anyother widely recognized law test as an entrance test. So you can write either of them and then fill your application for LLB course in the official website of VIT by filling the required details and submit your registration form. Then the merit screening happens based on your marks in LSAT, CLAT or any other law exam and candidates are shortlisted in that process.
