The Consortium of National Law Universities (NLUs) will hold the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 on September 7. The exams will be held from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm for both undergraduate and post-graduate candidates. The exam will be held through a centre-based online test.
CLAT was scheduled to be conducted in May but has been postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic. CLAT was held on May 26 last year and the result was announced in June.
