SC to Consortium of NLUs: Ensure that no differently abled student is denied access to CLAT

According to the Supreme Court, the Consortium of National Law Universities must ensure that no differently abled students are denied access to the upcoming CLAT examination and all necessary facilities, including a scribe to write the exams, are provided to the deserving candidates.

In order to enhance the quality of legal education in the country and facilitate better coordination among national law schools, the Consortium of National Law Universities was established on August 19, 2017.

Earlier this month, a bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice P S Narasimha ruled that no deserving student should be denied a scribe in the examination.

As part of our directive to the first respondent (Consortium), we request that all necessary accommodations, considering the provisions of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016, be provided to ensure that no disabled student is denied access to the ensuing examination.

As part of the listing process, the first respondent must submit a status report by the next listing date concerning the subject matter of the controversy in these proceedings, including the number of disabled candidates who applied to the following CLAT and the accommodations they received.

There will be a CLAT 2023 exam on December 18, 2022.

In its order, the top court dismissed a petition filed by disabled rights activist Arnab Roy challenging some restrictive conditions imposed on persons with disabilities seeking to use scribes by the CLAT consortium.
