CLAT 2019 official website and Consortium
Following the Supreme Court hearings on mismanagement of CLAT over the past few years and intervention of whistle-blowers like Prof Shamnad Basheer, it was decided that there should be a permanent body to look after such a national-level law entrance examination. CLAT, a most sought after undergraduate law exam in India attracts around 70,000 applications every year and allegations over botching of the examination system in the previously held CLAT papers taints the ‘fair’ image of the coveted law exam. In order to revive the CLAT system, a Consortium of National Law Universities was constituted on August 19, 2017. Prof R Venkata Rao was the Founding President of NLU Consortium.
The NLU consortium has its headquarter in Bengaluru where Dr Faizan Mustafa, the Vice Chancellor of NALSAR Hyderabad is its President and the NLIU Bhopal VC, Prof V Vijayakumar is the Vice President of CLAT Consortium of NLUs.
With the new pseudo-permanent body of CLAT in place, there was also a need of a centralised CLAT website and this is where it was decided that the older websites of CLAT will be replaced by a new CLAT 2019 official website.
CLAT 2019 official website: Layout and Design
While discussing the highlights of CLAT official website, it will be unfair if we don’t look at the layout and design of the CLAT website. When you look at the newly launched website of CLAT 2019, you will find that most of its design elements are characteristically similar to the one-year older version of CLAT website. Indeed, during the National University of Advanced Legal Studies Kochi (NUALS) convening, the designed CLAT official website is an exact replica of the newly launched CLAT 2019 official website.
Interestingly, when you scroll down the page of CLAT official website to read ‘About Us’ section, you will be able to see a background image of NUALS Kochi, which proves that the nothing much has changed in official website of CLAT 2019 from a layout and design perspective.
