CLAT 2019 to be conducted offline, declares NLU Consortium

Last Updated - October 20, 2018

The Common Law Admission Test has been facing a lot of controversies over the past few years (3 years to be exact). The major and most common issues were related to the technical glitches that have marred the conduct of the law entrance exam. In the 4th meeting of the NLU Consortium, held at NLSIU, Bangalore, it was unanimously decided that CLAT 2019 will be conducted offline (pen-paper) mode.

A press release was also released stating the following:

Keeping in view that in last few years there have been glitches due to the fault of the service provider in the conduct of the online CLAT examination, the CLAT Consortium unanimously resolved that CLAT-2019 will be conducted Off-line. It was also resolved that as and when number of candidates taking up CLAT drastically increases or when admission to law colleges in the entire country would be based only on the CLAT score, the feasibility of online test will be considered.
