Career in legal profession is one of the growing and lucrative professions in the country today. There are a number of universities and institutions conducting courses in law, through an entrance test which is usually held in the month of April/May. Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), is an initiative taken by the Human Candidates seeking admission to the Under Graduate (LLB) and Post Graduate (LLM) programmes in the top Law schools. The candidates must appear in Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) for graduate and post-graduate courses. The admission in the universities is based on the rank of the candidate in the entrance examination.
The National Law School of India University, Bangalore, the oldest law school among the 11 institutes, had conducted the first CLAT in 2008. Last year, NALSAR University, Hyderabad, had organized CLAT 2009 and over 15,000 had registered to take the test, but only 12,270 students cleared it.
This year over 17,000 candidates have appeared in Common Law Admission Test 2010 (CLAT 2010) on May 9 for admission to leading law schools in the country. The test was conducted by the National Law Institute University, Bhopal (NLIU-B). Most law colleges today admit students for the 5 year course on the basis of an entrance exam. Some colleges like GLC Mumbai and ILS Pune admit students directly based on their performance in the qualifying exams (10+2 or its equivalent).
