hello iam preparing for clat 2020 I have a doubt that someone is said to me that national law institute university (NLIU) has not offering state obc domicile reservations this year if someone has know this please tell

Sanjanaleekha 18th Feb, 2020

Hi there,

NLUI, Bhopal takes admission to its 5 year BA.LLB course on the basis of CLAT scores and it has its own seat matrix and seats reserved for students having domicile of Madhya Pradesh i.e. state domicile students.

To answer your question, as per the latest admission brochure which is uploaded by the university, it is offering a total of 07 seats out of a total of 122 seats in its BA.LLB course to MP State OBC students so it is not true that the university is not offering reservation to state domicile OBC students.

You can access the detailed brochure on the provided link for your reference,


what is the procedure of getting admission after clat ranking

Sanjanaleekha 18th Feb, 2020

Hi there,

After you get your CLAT scores, you will be given an All India Rank based on that scores, after you get the rank you will need to take p-art in counselling round where all the participating National Law Universities will declare their individual cut off list and based on this cut off list you will be allotted a college after this you will have to either lock in the college you have been allotted or continue to take part in the counselling process. If you decide to lock in the seat then you will have to pay the required admission fees to that particular NLU and get your required documents physically verified.
