The Consortium of National Law Universities announced new schedule for this year’s common law entrance exam.

The Common Law Admission Test, or CLAT, will be held on August 22, a notification uploaded on the website consortiumofnlus.ac.in  said.

The examination would be an online exam held at designated examination centres.  The list of exam centres would be notified on July 1.

Last date for registration for the exam is July 10.  

The notification said that the consortium’s executive committee, which met on June 29, had decided that off-line test would require “large scale movement of students to limited centres” and would pose logistical challenges at the time of a pandemic.  

“Further, an on-line test at home with technological measures cannot ensure transparency, fairness and integrity of a high stakes examination process or maintain equitable access to necessary facilities. Hence, the EC concluded that an on-line test at a large number of centres compliant with physical distancing and public health safety prescriptions is in the best interests of the health and safety of candidates and test administrators,” the notification said.

The coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown called to control its spread had put the examination, which was initially scheduled for May, to be put on hold.
