The Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is an entrance examination conducted in India for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate law programs offered by various national law universities (NLUs) and other participating institutions. CLAT is a highly competitive examination and serves as the gateway to prestigious law schools in India.

CLAT is typically held once a year, and its pattern and syllabus are determined by the Consortium of National Law Universities. The consortium consists of NLUs, which jointly conduct and manage the examination. The CLAT score is used by the participating institutions to determine a candidate’s eligibility for admission, and the ranking achieved in the exam plays a crucial role in the admission process.
