List Of Law Entrance Exams For Further Studies After Class 12

Law as a career is an attractive and lucrative option these days. And, if you are a law aspiring student, it is very important for you to explore the best available option for legal education in India. In most cases, the admissions to 5-year integrated LLB or 3-year LLB programmes are offered based on the law entrance exams.

Now, the question arises as to which entrance exam to appear. For example, those seeking admission to National Law Universities will have to appear in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). However, if you are planning to secure a seat in NLU Delhi, CLAT wouldn’t be the right choice as the university doesn’t accept CLAT scores. Similarly, for private law colleges, you have the choices like Symbiosis Law Aptitude Test (SLAT) and Law School Admission Test India (LSAT India).
