The National Law University of Orissa, Cuttack has decided to continue to conduct its own test as it has been doing so far.
The university, under the able leadership of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Faizan Mustafa is two years old but has already seen an amazing rise in its reputation and profile. Keeping this in mind, the University’s Executive Council Decided to go with its previous decision of taking its own test.
“No CLAT. Our executive council decided to go alone as our test is better”, said the prominent VC, in a private conversation with CG.”
It spells good news for students who’d have wanted a “back-up” plan and even the University as it’d only admit students of a certain standard. CG’s editorial view tends to lean heavily in the same direction.
It is also the University’s pursuit to prepare an entrance test that tests aptitude as against memory, however, “We want to change the pattern but students want CLAT like paper otherwise they will have to prepare differently”
NLU-O, in its nascent stage has carved a niche for itself, and hence, ClatGyan would encourage all Law School aspirants to attempt the test as well, as the quality of the paper tends to be perhaps the best amongst all mainstream law school entrances, and also because the NLU-O offers a new paradigm for students interested in “doing” law rather than “studying it”.
