CLAT paper error-free, says expert committee report: HC judge sceptical

The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015 expert committee has found that the CLAT 2015 LLB question paper has no errors, the Punjab & Haryana high court was told yesterday in a writ filed by CLAT 2015 candidate Agrima Lailer on 12 June through advocate Ravinder Malik.

Lailer told Legally India that CLAT 2015 convenor RMLNLU Lucknow’s counsel yesterday submitted a sealed cover to the Punjab & Haryana high court stating that the expert committee - formed for the second-time since the CLAT 2015 results were declared –  has reported that the errors referred to it were, in fact, not errors.

P&H HC Justice RK Jain, who was discussing the contents of the sealed cover, responded to the convenor’s counsel that even he could spot at least one obvious error, citing the analogy question 25 that had clearly relied on wrong definitions in the word pair 'dulcet-raucous', Lailer said.

Lailer’s writ, which brings before the court 16 alleged errors in the question paper, is posted to be heard on Thursday.

This is the second error-evaluation expert panel to have been formed by the CLAT office this year, on the orders of the Bombay high court, after the first panel only found two errors out of many more alleged errors referred to it by candidates and experts.

Writs in various high courts, including Lailer’s, have so far alleged nearly 40 errors in the LLB question paper.

Most NLUs have already started with admissions despite earlier high court orders asking for admissions to be conditional on the expert committee’s findings.
