Putting to bed concerns surrounding this year’s admissions to India’s premier law school, the Supreme Court today annulled the conduct of the National Law Aptitude Test (NLAT 2020).
While doing so, the Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and MR Shah held that admissions to National Law School of India University (NLSIU) Bangalore will be done through the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT 2020).
The Court has also urged the reinstatement of NLSIU to the Secretariat of the Consortium of National Law Universities, which had opposed the University’s move to conduct its separate exam.
In its 107-page judgment, the Bench framed five questions to arrive at its decision. Here is why the Court decided to quash the conduct of NLAT 2020.
