can i get direct admission in it?

Suryashis Chakraborty 14th Feb, 2020

Hello Abhishek,

National Law University, Delhi is one of the best law universities in India, offering courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The university offers various PG and UG courses across the stream of Law and Management.

The university conducts the All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) for admission in BA LLB, LLM, and PhD courses. All candidates, other than those applying under the Foreign Nationals category, should appear for the All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) and the selection will be solely on that basis.

Therefore, only Foreign Nationals are exempted from appearing in the examination and can get direct admission given that they have obtained a minimum of 65% in their qualifying examination.

Hope this helps you. We wish you the best for your future endeavours!



How l can l prepare for AILET entrance exam

Nikhitha Sai 9th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant. Firstly, the subjects are english, mathematics just the basic maths, GK, legal aptitude and reasoning. Hope you would be aware of the syllabus. If not, drop a comment, I will help you with that.

1. English... usual ones like, blanks, synonyms, passages so on and so forth. Practice the previous year question papers

2. Basic mathematics .. algebra, work and time, Quant of basic level, distance etc ..practice RS agarwal books and ncert books bits, it would be more than enough. But practice daily

3. GK... get to know all the static gk question and answers that are constant. Regarding current affairs ,follow news and news paper daily. If possible note down the issues going on for long time aptitude .. solve the current legal problems, read the case studies given in the net that are solved before related to legal problems. The many you solve, the better it would be

5. Reasoning.. again, practice rs agarwal book, previous reasoning and non verbal questions. Solve the test papers

All the best

will nlu delhi roll back the 50% domicile reservation after the students have opposed the move?

IMran Mir 29th Jan, 2020

Hey there,

Hope you’re having a great day.

I would like to inform you that it is highly unlikely for National Law University Delhi to roll back the 50% domicile reservation even after the students have revolted against them because this is not the first time it is happening and it will happen as long as NLU Delhi exists in India. Probability of removal is still very less.

Let me know if you have further clarifications by mentioning it in the comment section below.

Have a nice day!

I wish that you have a bright future ahead.
