The Consortium of National Law Universities (CNLU) issued the final answer key for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) UG and PG 2021 on Tuesday, July 27.

The Consortium also issued a press release outlining the changes made in response to objections raised by students who took the CLAT 2021 exam.

Constitution of Subject Expert Committees:

Pursuant to the receipt of the objections, the Executive Committee of Consortium met on July 24, 2021, and thereby directed the Convenor to constitute a Committee comprising three subject experts for each of the five sections of the UG and a Committee of three subject experts for the PG. 

The Committees included renowned scholars, deans, and heads of departments and they were tasked with the responsibility to look into the objections.

According to the official press release, the Executive Council of the Consortium of NLUs accepted the suggestion of deleting one question (question number 143) from the CLAT UG paper based on recommendations from the Subjects Expert Committee and the Oversight Committee.

In addition, the council agreed to modify two answers (question numbers 86 and 145) in the CLAT UG answer key and one answer (question number 116) in the CLAT PG answer key.
