CLAT Consortium - The Consortium of National Law Universities or CLAT Consortium is a group of 22 National Law Universities that conducts the Common Law Admission Test. The consortium of NLUs was first established on August 9, 2017, with the objectives to improve the legal education of the country and ensure better management and coordination among all the national law universities. Over the year, the CLAT Consortium has evolved into an organization that is well organized, effective and transparent in conducting the national level law entrance exam. This year, CLAT 2021 will be conducted on May 09 (Sunday) in offline, pen and paper format. Read the complete article to learn more about CLAT Consortium.
History of CLAT Consortium
Before 2019, the Common Law Admission Test was being conducted by the National Law Universities on a rotational basis. However, to make the CLAT more organised, transparent and effective and to promote legal education in the country, around 18 NLUs came together and formed the Consortium of National Law Universities or CLAT Consortium on August 19, 2017. In later years, four more universities joined CLAT Consortium. Today, except National Law University, Delhi, all other NLUs are part of CLAT Consortium.

The application form has been released on January 1 and the last date to register for CLAT is March 31. The CLAT has undergone some changes over the years. Here is an analysis of the key changes introduced in CLAT 2021 by the Consortium of NLUs in recent times.
Earlier, the test paper of CLAT consisted of 200 objective type questions. However, in 2020, the consortium announced the CLAT will have comprehension based questions designed to test the critical thinking and reading skills of the candidates. The number of questions was also brought down from 200 to 150 in CLAT UG and from 150 to 120 questions in CLAT LLM.
The CLAT syllabus was left unchanged. However, since the paper was reoriented to make it a comprehension based exam, the syllabus was updated accordingly. The CLAT UG 2021 syllabus consists of the following subjects.
