Good luck: Here’s hoping CLAT 2019 will go smoothly. If not, share your experiences

Can NLUs jointly avoid what most have botched individually?
Can NLUs jointly avoid what most have botched individually?

The 2019 Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) will be held tomorrow, so, first of all, we’d would like to wish good luck to all aspirants.

The newly-formed consortium of national law school vice chancellors has made a number of promising changes this year, including transferring the CLAT to a permanent CLAT secretariat.

For one, the exam will be held offline, hopefully avoiding previous years’ often ill-fated experiments.

Another welcome measure from the consortium’s recent February meeting has promised:

the Executive Committee resolved to put in place a Grievance Redressal Committee for CLAT-2019 which shall be headed by a Former Judge of the Supreme Court and two Former Vice-Chancellors and two present Vice-Chancellors of National Law Universities who are not members of the Executive Committee.

Let’s hope it won’t be required to intervene, though it’s notoriously difficult to make sure the exam goes out without any hitches and that no questions have any issues.

And, much like every year, this is the first year the consortium is holding the CLAT, so the same teething troubles may apply that have afflicted new conveners nearly every year.

So, as requested by readers, if anything in this year’s CLAT did not go well on the day (or has not gone well so far), ranging from bad questions to other organisational issues, please share in the comments so we can ensure it gets fed back to the consortium.

All the best tomorrow!
