i am an 3rd year student of BA who want to enter this university to pursue PG diploma in public health care and medical law......should i write CLAT for this???
Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is a centralised national level governmental entrance test for admissions to twenty two National Law Universities (NLU) in India. Most private and self-financed law schools in India also use these scores for law admissions.
The eligibility for doing PG Diploma in public health is that a candidate should have M.B.B.S. or BDS or B.Sc. degree in the field of health sciences, nursing or natural sciences or holding a BA degree in social science or any other equivalent examination with a minimum aggregate of 50% marks.
For pursuing medical law you don't have to appear in CLAT, you can get direct admission in some law colleges.
