The Consortium Of NLUs has decided to make certain changes to the CLAT exam pattern, scheduled to be held on May 10, 2020. As per the press release issued in this behalf, following decisions were made by the Consortium, in a meeting held on November 21:

CLAT UG

Comprehension based questions would be asked from Quantitative Techniques, English, Current Affairs, Deductive Reasoning and Logical Reasoning. Further, the total number of questions in the UG exam will be reduced from 200 to 120-150 questions.

Supporting the decision, President of the Consortium, Prof. Faizan Mustafa said, "asking students to answer 200 questions in 120 minutes is not right as it puts students under lot of mental stress… the idea is to get better students to National Law Universities who have competence in reading texts and demonstrate skills in inferential reasoning."

However, the exam will continue to remain off line and the duration will be two hours.

CLAT PG

The PG admission test will also have comprehension based questions and the descriptive portion will remain same as last year. Meanwhile, the Executive Council of CLAT–2020 will study the possibility of introducing cut off marks for the LL.M.

Other Decisions

The Consortium also resolved to undertake several Faculty Development Programmes in various member NLUs and launch a scheme of Scholarship / Fee Concessions for the students of NLUs. The Consortium also plans to also assist the member NLUs in upgrading their library, IT facilities and other infrastructure.

Apart from Prof. Mustafa, the meeting was chaired by Vice-Chancellor, NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad and all the Vice-Chancellors of member NLUs of the Consortium attended the meeting.

At the end of the meeting:

  1. Prof. V. Vijayakumar, Vice-Chancellor, NLIU, Bhopal was elected as the new President of the Consortium,
  2. Prof. Paramjit S. Jaswal, Vice-Chancellor, RGNUL, Punjab was elected as the Vice-President of the Consortium,
  3. Prof. Balraj Chouhan, Vice-Chancellor, Dharmashastra National Law University, Jabalpur was elected as CLAT–2020 Convenor
  4. Prof. Srikrishna Deva Rao, Vice-Chancellor, NLUO was elected as Member of the Executive Council for CLAT – 2020
  5. Prof. V. Kesava Rao, Vice-Chancellor, NUSRL, Ranchi will attend the meetings of the Executive Council as Special Invitee for the purposes of conduct of CLAT – 2020.
