Careers360: Last year, CLAT committee had added MNLU Mumbai to its list. Is there any further addition to it?
Dr. Lakshminath: As many as 18 NLUs are participating in CLAT 2017 with Maharashtra National Law University (MNLU) Nagpur, the latest entrant to the CLAT committee. CLAT 2017 aspirants will now be vying for a total of 2312 seats in five-year integrated law programmes.

Careers360: Are there any likely modifications in CLAT 2017 admission process?
Dr. Lakshminath: Yes, after the BCI’s order to all universities and law institutions on age criteria, the examination committee has decided to change the eligibility criteria of CLAT 2017. Candidates should be less than 20 years of age if applying for CLAT 2017 under General category and less than 22 years if applying under OBC*/SC/ST/Specially-Abled categories.


*Note - There was confusion regarding upper age limit of OBC candidates. The BCI's official notification read 22 years as the upper age limit, whereas CLAT 2017 convenor, earlier, had shared the maximum age as 20 years, which was creating the confusion among CLAT aspirants. Careers360, on behalf of the prospective CLAT 2017 aspirants had written to the convenor regarding this after which he clarified the confusion stating that only BCI rules would be followed.

how much time we should have for Lsat preparation

jainsi agrawal 15th Feb, 2020

For Lsat preparation the minimum time one should give is approx 120-150 hours in a 2-3 month period. Some students who wants to top and get best  spends 250-300  hours.

And also it depends on your catching power that how you grab the things and in how much time.

If you are not able to give this much time and you only have 10 hours to give per week so you should start alot earlier.
