NLAT 2020: The Supreme Court has allowed the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) Bangalore to organize NLAT 2020. However, the Supreme Court said that the institute will not declare the result of the examination, unless the court gives a decision on the validity of this examination. The former vice-chancellor of NLSIU, Prof. (Dr.) R. Venkata Rao and the parents of the students had filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the sudden decision to separate NLSIU Bangalore from CLAT 2020 and conduct separate NLAT 2020 examination. The petition said that the NLSIU action has created an unprecedented uncertainty and has also put undue burden on the students, who are now uncertain about the future program.
The petition also said that such “unilateral decision” of NLSIU to conduct a separate examination has CLAT 2020 candidates in trouble and is a serious violation of their fundamental rights. The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) has issued technical requirements for awarding NLAT 2020. It is mandatory to have a computer system / laptop with at least 1 MBPS bandwidth.
There are 23 colleges in the consortium of law colleges of the country and they have fixed the CLAT 2020 exam on 28 September, while NLSIU has fixed the NLAT 2020 exam on 12 September.
