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.

Hi,

If your query is related with doing 5-year BALLB program being offered at University Law College (ULC) I must say no. Because it has its own admission process. Basically, CLAT is an entrance exam for taking admission in NLUs. Eligibility Criteria for ULC's BALLB can be checked by following the link given: https://eng.bangaloreuniversity.ac.in/university-law-college/

clat ki study ke liye kitne month ka time sufficient hai...? please answer

Aman Raj Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Hello Bablu

Every other person has a different brain which works in different frequencies.

What I can study in 10 hours, maybe you can study in 2.

So this is really irrelevant.


But still to answer your question, according to some statistics, a good amount of 4–5 hours a day can help you get into a tier 1 college, but those hours should be with complete dedication and for 5-6 months.
