CLAT is an all India Exam which offers entrance to various law institutes of the country. As regarding current affairs, the previous year paper trends show that current affairs of past one year is focused upon so you should look to cover current affairs ideally from Feb~March 2020. However you should not neglect the important news going around currently. Also, when preparing the current affairs, in-depth knowledge of the news should also be looked upon for important cases as many questions are framed on these terms.
Current Affairs (CA) coverage has been on the rise every year.
I would suggest you to refer the important topics of all months and deeply read it and make notes of the same.
Regular reading of a daily newspaper like The Hindu is a MUST. Rather than focusing on headlines alone, second level information surrounding the news is equally important.
Hope it helps :)
