NUALS informed the apex court that it would address the issues of students who suffered technical glitches during CLAT 2018 exam.
On May 24, 2018, the Supreme Court of India heard pleas challenging CLAT 2018 examination, which took place on May 13, 2018. Earlier, a section of students approached High Court demanding the exam authority to conduct re-test. With a motive to look into the matter and do justice to students, Supreme Court has intervened to hear the pleas. The apex court directed the exam authority, i.e., National University of Advanced Legal Studies to offer solutions to complaints filed by the aspirants. The SC further directed the High Courts not to process with pending cases on identical issues.
On May 23, 2018, the matter pertaining to CLAT 2018 was mentioned before the bench of justices Navin Sinha and AM Khanwilkar. Further, the judges directed the lawyers and petitioners to serve a copy of students’ pleas to the counsel for respondents (respondents in this context means 19 National Law Universities that accept CLAT 2018 score for the admission to law courses).
