National Law University Odisha, Cuttack will organise CLAT 2019 Counselling by the 1st week of June 2019. After the announcement of results, the counselling process will start. Candidates will be required to join the counselling of CLAT 2019 in online mode. There will be a number of processes included in the CLAT 2019 counselling process namely – online registration, making choice of NLU, allotment of seats in NLUs and payment of CLAT Counselling fee, upgrading of seats and then reporting to the allotted NLUs.

Withdrawal: This option can be used by the candidates in two ways - If any candidate participating in the CLAT 2019 counselling fails to deposit the requisite amount of counselling fees, then he/ she will lose the chance to get admission in NLUs of his/ her choice as his/ her name will be dropped from the admission merit list and this is the first way to withdraw an NLU seat, it can be deliberately done or by mistake.
Final Admission List: Based on the vacant seats in institutes, a second, third and final list of shortlisted candidates may be published. In order to confirm the seats allotted to them, candidates will have to get their documents verified by the designated authority and pay the admission fees.
