NEW DELHI, MAY 25: The National University of Advanced Legal Studies Kochi (NUALS) has readily agreed to constitute a Grievance Redressal Committee to deal with the complaints of the test takers against the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018. This readiness of NUALS came after when the Supreme Court directed the NLU to constitute a Grievance Redressal Forum and find amicable solutions for the ‘huge problems’. The Grievance Redressal Committee constitutes two members– Retired Kerala High Court Judge, Justice MR Hariharan Nair and Head of Computer Science Department of Cochin University, Dr Santosh Kumar G, who will now examine all the complaints of individual CLAT candidates and make recommendations.
