What are the Lock, Upgrade and Withdrawal options?

Lock – The ‘Lock’ option confirms admission of the candidate to the allotted NLU. After exercising this option, the candidate shall not be considered for further upgrade to any other NLU of choice in case of any vacancy arising at subsequent stage during counselling process.

Upgrade – This option offers you an opportunity to upgrade your allotted seat to a NLU of higher preference via subsequent allotment list. Therefore the option helps the candidate in securing a seat without locking it for a certain NLU, rather with a chance of upgrading it to the NLU of next higher preference in the next allotment rounds.

Withdrawal – Exercising this option, a candidate can withdraw his candidature from the admission process. In such case, the candidate will forfeit the right to be considered eligible for admissions and therefore the counselling committee will refund the remaining amount paid by the candidate against the counselling fee after deducting a certain amount from the same.

What is the syllabus for CLAT PG 2020? when is the entrance exam and registration going to be held?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 25th Nov, 2019

NUSRL, Ranchi will officially release CLAT syllabus tentatively during the 3rd or last weeks of December 2019. But based on previous years' syllabus, this answer is being written. CLAT LLM syllabus has various sections such as Constitutional Law, Law of Torts, International Law, Jurisprudence, Intellectual Property law, Law of Contracts and Criminal Law. Constitutional law refers to the rights states and implemented in the Federal and State Constitutions. Law of Torts in common law jurisdictions is a civil wrong that causes a claimant to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who is accused of committing the act.

Now Constitutional laW carries 50 marks and so books by VN Shukla, Brij Kishore Sharma and JN Pandey are must reads.

For Jurisprudence, books by VD Mahajan and Mani Tripathi are the best in the market. This is a tough subject, carries 50 marks and so try checking guides available on this subject in the local book stores as well.

For the rest of the subjects, followclat ll Singhal's solved CLAT papers and gather as much information as possible from Internet for your preparation
