Age no bar for learning law, rules Supreme Court

The old saying that age is no bar for learning will apply from this year to those desiring to appear in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), the screening gateway for admission to prestigious national law universities (NLU). 

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed an appeal by Lucknow-based Dr Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMLNLU), which had challenged an Allahabad High Court order directing the university to remove the age limit of 20 years for candidates wishing to appear in CLAT this year. 

CLAT is an all-India entrance examination conducted on rotation by the 16 national law universities for admissions to their under-graduate and post-graduate degree programmes (LLB and LLM). CLAT-2015 will be conducted by RMLNLU. The last date for submission of online applications for CLAT is March 31.
