The Consortium of National Law Universities will hold the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2020 on September 7. It was scheduled to be conducted in May and has been postponed several times since then due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, the CLAT was held on May 26 and the result was announced in June.

Recently, it was scheduled to be held in August and last week the same was postponed till further notice. As per the latest notice by the authorities, the exam will now be held on September 7.

CLAT is an entrance-level exam for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate law courses. It is a national level exam and also a gateway to National Law Universities (NLUs). Every year, thousands of students appear for the exam. The NLUs were also mulling the option of holding the exam from home in a proctor-based mode, however, no final decision on it is out yet. The case was in court.
