Sourav Sarkar Student Expert 17th Jul, 2019

Hi dear,

Hope you are doing well!

Now let's go through your question.

As you will be knowing that Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) is an All-India centralized examination that allows the students to get admission in the 21 National Law Universities in India for Law courses such as LLB and LLM.

Am sorry to say but you can't give CLAT PG as per as the Clat eligibility which says that:

  • You must have a three-year LLB degree or a three-year integrated LLB degree if equivalent LLB degree from a recognized University with 55% for General/ OBC/ SAP, and 50% for SC/ST.(aggregate marks)

Thank You & All the best!

I have completed my graduation in BCom. Still want to pursue 5yrs llb from NLUs next year. No 3yrs course only from NLUs. Is it possible?

Jigyashu Nager 27th Jun, 2019

Sorry to inform you, that you can not opt NLU's LLB course for just 3 years, as, the university only offers bachelor's degree in law by pursuing course BA LLB continuously for 5 years. But there are good options for you by giving an entrance examination like CLAT/ LSAT/ NLSIU qualifying with the good percentage you can get admission in reputable colleges, like:

- Hansraj College, Delhi

- Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi

- St. Joseph's College of Commerce, Bangalore

- Faculty of Law, Allahabad University 

- Institute of Law, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra

All the best, for your further preparations!

I got a score of 128.25 and rank air 3140 and belongs to an all India general category. Do I have a chance of getting in any of the nlus??

Mahima Student Expert 24th Jun, 2019
Hey Aman..
The cut off for admission in any of the National Law Universities through CLAT in the previous year was a rank in the range of 1600 for the general category. Considering that your rank is 3140, you do not seem to have any chances for any of the National LawUniversities if you belong to the general category in any subsequent allotment lists. Even for NLU Sonipat chances are not much.
Usually there are vacancies in the lower NLUs as people leave their seats for other colleges. You might have a fair chance then. But vacancies are very uncertain and you might/ might not have a chance.
For vacancies, you need to catch up with official websites of each lower tier NLU. As thw vacancies are handled by NLUs themselves and not through any common mode.

Also, if you have other optiona various non NLU law colleges and even private colleges are better than the lower tier NLUs. So you can prefer joining those instead of waiting for vacancies if the fees isn't a problem. As there isn't much difference in fees of various NLUs and private colleges too.
Other than colleges with their own entrances, There are various Private Colleges that accept CLAT scores other than the National Law Universities. You might even have a chance for colleges under IPU, Delhi if you applied there.

Here is a list of a few of them.
Jindal Global Law School, Sonepat
Kirit P. Mehta School of Law, Mumbai
ICFAI Law School, HyderabadSchool of Law, GITAM University, Visakhapatnam
Alliance School of Law, Bangalore
IFIM Law College, Bangalore
LLOYD Law College,Greater Noida
Amity University, U.P.
Asian Law College, Noida
Manipal University, Jaipur
