Compared to the previous year CLAT registration record, there is a 13% increase in the number of applicants in CLAT 2017. According to Prof. A. Lakshminath, CLAT 2017 Convener, this year around 45,000 candidates applied for the undergraduate law programme and 6,000 for the postgraduate law programme. He also said that, after the Supreme Court of India stayed the Bar Council of India’s age criteria in March, there was a sudden rise in the number of applicants. Also, this year, the National Law University, Nagpur has joined the league of the NLUs accepting CLAT score. Also, around 27 law schools will be accepting the CLAT 2017 score.
Last year, the total number of CLAT applicants were 45,041, while this year the number of applicants are around 51,000. According to Prof. Lakshminath, the stay order on BCI’s age bar is one of the factors that helped in the increase in the registration.

Last year, out of the 45,041, there was a total of 23,517 male candidates, 21,520 female candidates and 4 transgenders.
