Careers360: CLAT takers and experts have raised doubts on CLAT 2017 answer keys and also discrepancies in question paper. What is your take on this?CLAT 2017 Convenor: We are looking into the concerns raised by different stakeholders. However, let me clarify that CNLU Patna is only responsible for smooth and fair conduct of the exam on behalf of all participating National Law Universities (NLUs) of CLAT 2017. It was a Common Law Admission Test Expert Committee which had set the question paper and no particular NLU can be held responsible for this. The expert committee comprises several members representing different NLUs.
