HC quashes upper age limit for CLAT-2015
The Allahabad High Court on Monday struck down the upper age limit of 20 years fixed for appearing in the Combined Law Admission Test (CLAT) to be held this year.

Justice S K Gupta passed the order allowing the writ petition of Devasheesh Pathak and 20 others who had challenged the advertisement issued by Dr Ram Manohar Lohia University, Lucknow, which has been entrusted with the task this year to conduct the CLAT-2015 which aspirants need to clear to get admission in any of the 16 National Law Schools across the country.

The court was of the view that the age limit of 20 years stated in the advertisement as well as the information brochure was "without authority of law" since there was "no provision of law which gives the university the power to fix the upper age limit".

In view of the fact that the last date for submission of forms was March 31, the court directed the Vice-Chancellor of the Dr Ram Manohar Lohia University to "accept the forms of those candidates also who have crossed 20 years of age and allow them to appear them in the examinations subject to their satisfying other conditions of eligibility".
