NEW DELHI: The law entrance exams such as CLAT, MH CET law, AILET, DU LLB and others are popular among law aspiring students. These entrance exams will form the basis for admission to law programmes such as 5-year LLB, 3-year LLB and LLM. The law admission for the academic year 2021-22 has already been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The entrance exams have been announced in some cases, while in others, the final dates are yet to be determined.

There is still a lot of uncertainty over the law entrance exams in view of COVID-19 which is still affecting the daily lives. So, it is important for candidates to track all the exam-related events and stay up to date with the latest developments.

CLAT 2021 - Admit card expected, exam date announced

The exam date for Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2021 is July 23, 2021 (evening shift). The application form for CLAT 2021 was available till July 15. The consortium may also release the CLAT 2021 admit card this week on its admission portal. Along with the admit card, it will also release the exam day guidelines and safety protocols considering the COVID-19 pandemic.

Will CLAT 2021 be postponed again?

Even though the country is recording over 30,000 cases of COVID-19 and more than 500 deaths every day, CLAT postponement is unlikely. The ICAI CA exams for July 2021 are currently being conducted even after repeated requests by students for postponement and a prolonged court hearing. Therefore, this means, if the offline based CA exam can be conducted across the country over multiple days, then holding a one-day CLAT will not be very difficult for the consortium unless state governments reimpose strict lockdown and announce travel restrictions.
