CLAT 2022-23 Counselling Process

The consortium counselling process involves the following steps:

  • CLAT counselling registration (only invited candidates can register for counselling)
  • Document submission
  • Confirming NLU preference
  • Seat allotment
  • Post-allotment options presented before the candidates

CLAT 2022-23 Counselling – Important Points

  • Shortlisted candidates for counselling will be able to see a counselling registration link in their registered account.
  • Candidates need to update their NLU preferences. There are 22 NLUs for CLAT UG and 19 NLUs for CLAT LLM. Candidates may choose NLUs in the order of preference and are advised to enter at least five NLUs in their preference list.
  • If no fresh options are entered by the candidates, existing preference will prevail.Β 
  • In such cases, the preference selected by the candidate in the application form will be considered.Β 
  • After the last date of counselling registration, no request will be entertained for change of NLU preference.

Note: Candidates will not be considered for admission to any NLU other than those selected by them in preference lists. For example, if a candidate has selected only three NLUs, he/she will be eligible to contest only those and not in the remaining NLUs. This is true even if seats are vacant in the remaining NLUs and the candidate gets a seat as per their rank.
