Delhi High Court Seeks  Centre and NLU to state their points in response to students petition to take law test from home.

The Delhi High Court Tuesday asked the Centre and the Consortium of National Law Universities (NLU) to express their points to a law graduate’s petition challenging the requirement of physically appearing at the exam centre for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 during COVID-19 pandemic. Justice Jayant Nath asked the central government to present the court whether it would be permissible to hold such an exam at physical centres in view of the prevailing pandemic.

The court issued notices to the central government and the NLU, seeking their stand by August 10 on the petition which has sought that the online CLAT exams are allowed to be undertaken from home.

About CLAT:

            CLAT is a centralised exam for admissions to bachelors and masters courses in law in 22 NLUs across the country and is conducted by the consortium.

           According to the CLAT 2020 notification, the exam would be held online at notified centres where computers would be set up for candidates to access the test. The counsel appearing for the consortium initially said the petition was not maintainable in Delhi as the consortium was based in Bengaluru. He also said that it was decided not to hold CLAT at home as it would lead to rampant cheating.
