A petition has been moved by five students, in Jharkhand High Court, against the National Law School of India, Bangalore’s decision to break away from CLAT and conducting it’s own entrance exam, National Law Altitude Test (NLAT) on September 12th. The petition prays for quashing the notification released by NLSIU on 3rd September calling for the date of the examination in lieu of CLAT which is scheduled on September 28th, 2020. The contentions made in the petition stated that the decision to declare a new date and exam pattern for the exam was illegal, whimsical and arbitrary and is in violation of clause 15.7 of the bye-laws of the Consortium of National Law Universities. It also says that holding a separate exam without withdrawing from the CLAT Consortium is illegal. The CLAT Consortium will be holding meetings regarding the same.
