A Madras high court bench of Justices V Ramasubramanian and V M Velumani has ordered the Common Law Admissions Test (CLAT) convenor GNLU Gandhinagar to list the new Tamil Nadu National Law School (TN NLS) in Srirangam to its website, after having earlier told GNLU to provisionally allocate 14 places to the college.

The same petitioner had approached the court to request the CLAT website to include TN NLS on the website. The CLAT website, to date, carried a brief notice on its frontpage summarising the earlier high court decision, but did not include Tamil Nadu's second NLS in the list of 14 other national law schools.

The petitioner, Tiruchy-based advocate R Rajkumar, also submitted to the court that the CLAT should be "monitored and conducted" by a nodal agency, the Bar Council of India (BCI) and the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to "avoid the allegation of partiality and favouritism against a particular university conducting the exam each year", reported the New Indian Express.

I strongly agree to making CLAT a part of(or whatever!) BCI/MoHRD.

Please note that it was a part of an understanding arrived at amongst the various NLSes that CLAT would be conducted each year by one of the NLSes in the order of their year of establishment, with NLSIU conducting the 1st CLAT followed by NALSAR and then NUJS and so on.Therefore "partiality and favouritism against a particular university" is such a baseless and misinformed allegation.


The need for a nodal agency, nevertheless is much desirable.
