CLAT postponed to 27 September

The 2020 Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) has been postponed to 28 September 2020, a meeting of the CLAT consortium of national law school vice-chancellors (VC) decided yesterday.

According to the notification, a copy of which we have seen and which is expected to be notified shortly, the exam will now be held on Monday, 28 September, from 2 to 4pm.

Of particular concern in the decision was the situation of different lockdowns in various states, since the consortium can only hold a single physical exam nationally in all states contemporaneously.

According to the notification:

At this meeting, the Executive Committee assessed the prevailing lockdown situation in various parts of the country and in particular, took into consideration the lockdown announced in the state of West Bengal for the 7th September, and the continued lockdown in the state of Bihar until the 6th September. On this basis, the Consortium has taken the following decision:

The CLAT 2020 examination for both UG and PG candidates scheduled for 7th September, 2020 has been postponed to Monday, the 28th September, 2020 from 2 to 4 PM.

The CLAT had on 10 August been postponed to 7 September.
