The Supreme Court (SC) has released its judgement on NLAT 2020. This law entrance exam which was conduted for the first time ever this year stands cancelled now. The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) will conduct its admission process for the academic session 2020-21 through CLAT 2020, similar to its admissions of the previous years.
Many petitions were filed against NLAT 2020 and there were ongoing cases regarding the exam. The Supreme Court also stated that the results of CLAT 2020 must be announced as soon as possible and the admission process of the exam should be wrapped up by mid-October. Following its selection criteria of the previous years, NLSIU will accept CLAT for shortlisting candidates for it UG and PG programmes of law. The court said that the admission process of CLAT must not be hindered by NLU Bangalore in any way.
Students as well as former NLU vice-chancellors and officials had challenged the National Law Admission Test (NLAT) 2020 due to several reasons. After the exam was conducted the petitioners had also filed a rejoinder before the SC, asserting that NLU Bangalore had failed in conducting NLAT 2020 properly and a large number of candidates suffered due to this. It was stated that the examination and its procedure lacked transparency and had several technical glitches.
This stance was supported by the Consortium of National Law Universities (NLUs), which had also filed a counter affidavit in the matter through the Vice-Chancellor of NALSAR, Professor Faizan Mustafa.
NLSIU and its Vice-Chancellor Professor Sudhir Krishnaswamy, on the other hand, filed affidavits questioning the maintainability of the plea before the Supreme Court, justifying the conduct of its exam, and urging for the writ petition to be dismissed.
