National Law University (AILET- All India Legal Entrance Test)
NLU-Delhi is the only National Law School outside the CLAT, which has broken protocol to emerge amongst the top five National law schools in the country sans the fact that not a single batch has passed out. The number of seats to number of test takers is the most disproportionate amongst all law schools making it perhaps the most competitive law entrance exam in the country. Though the syllabus mirrors CLAT at the first flush, there are some differences between NLU-D and the CLAT paper.
Firstly, there is a strong focus on Conventional GK.
Secondly the Legal portion of late has been balanced between knowing the Constitution and legal theory rather than relying on legal reasoning alone. Legal reasoning questions have also been asked in the past without supplying principles.
Lastly the exam time is 90 minutes compared to 120 minutes available for CLAT, making time management even more crucial Last year’s notification at NLU-Delhi detailed the syllabus as follows.
