The Allahabad High Court has scrapped the upper age limit of 20 years fixed for appearing in the Combined Law Admission Test (CLAT) to be held this year.

 

According to PTI, Justice S K Gupta passed the order allowing the writ petition of Devasheesh Pathak and 20 others who had challenged the advertisement issued by Dr Ram Manohar Lohia University, Lucknow, which is conducting CLAT-2015.

Law aspirants need to appear for CLAT 2015 to get admission into the five-year integrated LLB course in any of the 16 National Law Schools across the country. The online application process started from January 1, 2015 and the last date for application is March 31, 2015. The entrance exam is scheduled to be held on May 10.

 

The court observed  that the age limit of 20 years stated in the advertisement as well as the information brochure was "without authority of law" since there was "no provision of law which gives the university the power to fix the upper age limit.

In view of the fact that the last date for submission of forms was March 31, the court has directed the Vice-Chancellor of the Dr Ram Manohar Lohia University to accept the forms of those candidates also who have crossed 20 years of age and allow them to appear in the examinations subject to their satisfying other conditions of eligibility.

 

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is an all India entrance examination conducted on rotation by the sixteen National Law Universities (NLUs).  The total number of seats to be offered through CLAT for the five-year undergraduate law programmes is more than 2100 this year.

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 23rd Jan, 2020
There is no age limit for appearing in CLAT 2020 for UG program as well as in CLAT PG exam. So if you are able to fetch decent score, then you can get admission on the basis of that score. There is also no upper age limit for appearing in LSAT India Examination. But you can check the age limit specified by individual colleges wherein you want to seek admission.
