NLSIU Bengaluru will hold its own online entrance test, opts out of CLAT 2020

The National Law School of India (NLSIU) Bengaluru will not accept CLAT 2020 scores for admission in this academic session. The university will hold its own admission test called National Law Aptituted Test(NLAT) 2020.
The online portal will open on September 3 and will close at midnight on September 10,2020. All applications must be submitted online at

“The repeated postponement of the examination has resulted in uncertainty for students, parents and the participating Universities. NLSIU is uniquely disadvantaged as it follows a trimester system where every academic year is made up of three terms of 90 days duration. Moreover, each term must accommodate 60 hours of classroom instruction in each course and adequately provide for examination and evaluation processes. Further, the academic offering for the 3rd, 4th and 5th year of the B.A., LL.B programme as well as the LL.M programme is fully integrated and requires a common academic calendar. Hence, if NLSIU is unable to complete admissions before the end of September 2020 it will inevitably result in a ‘Zero Year’ with no admission,” said a notification from the university.
