  1. Roll Number

What next?

After the representations have been made, the Grievance Redressal Committee constituting Retired Kerala High Court Judge, Justice MR Hariharan Nair and Head of Computer Science Department of Cochin University, Dr Santosh Kumar G, will be examining all the complaints of individual CLAT candidates and make recommendations to the Supreme Court and the NLU Kochi on May 30, 2018.

Story so far

The NUALS had constituted a Grievance Redressal Committee to deal with the complaints of the test takers against the Common Law Admission Test.

This came after when the Supreme Court directed the NLU to constitute a Grievance Redressal Forum and find amicable solutions for the ‘huge problems’.

CLAT 2018 was conducted on May 13 by NUALS Kochi heading the 19-NLU Core Committee. The online examination was marred by the alleged technical glitches at centres across India, following which the test takers are seeking justice in the courts against the ‘misconduct’ of CLAT 2018.

A number of petitions calling for the re-conduct of the Common Law Admission test have been filed in the High Courts of Delhi, Punjab & Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.

The Common Law Admission Test is the national level law exam for admissions to 2300 undergraduate seats on offer in the participating 19 NLUs.
