JJharkhand High Court Judge Justice Rajesh Shankar is hearing a writ petition  challenging the decision of the National Law University Bangalore to hold a separate test for admission to five year B.A LL.B(Hons) course for the academic year 2020-21.

The petition has been filed by 5 CLAT aspirants from Jharkhand, stating that NLSIU's decision to withdraw from CLAT and to hold a separate examination, despite being a "permanent member" of the NLU Consortium, is unlawful and arbitrary.
