03 November 2014

RMLNLU Lucknow, the convenor of the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2015, will conduct it online, reported the Times of India.

Every step in the exam from filling the examination form to submitting the fee will be online, according to the resolution of the CLAT core committee meeting held on Saturday. The fee for taking the CLAT remains the same as last year.

The forms will be available online from 1 January 2015 until 31 March. An online testing protocol, orientation on how to appear for the exam and, as reported last week, and trained invigilators for support will be available to the examinees. LLM-admission candidates will have to attempt an entirely objective-type question paper as opposed to last year when it had some subjective questions as well.

This year DNLU, AP joins CLAT as the 16th NLU under its umbrella. CLAT will be conducted in 28 cities in 2015, which is right more than in 2014. RMLNLU is yet to finalise on the agency to conduct the exam, from among eight incumbents five of whom have given their presentations to the CLAT 2015 convenor.

RMLNLU Lucknow has lowered its undergraduate five-year BA LLB course fees to Rs 1.05 lakh per year after having doubled its fees from Rs 74,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh per year in 2013, reported the Times of India.

Students had protested the fee hike, which was apparently the first since the university started last year, so the administration gave in and cut the fees in part. The lion's share of the Rs 1.05 lakh are tuition fees at Rs 60,000, followed by admissions fees of Rs 10,000, room rent for Rs 7,500 and other expenses. Total standard fees at NLSIU Bangalore are Rs 1.76 lakh per year, by comparison.
