Even as India’s legal system is collapsing under the weight of pending caseload — a record 47 million cases are pending in the country’s courts — legal education institutions are flourishing and multiplying across the country. According to Union law minister Kiren Rijiju, currently 1,721 colleges/ universities — including 920 private colleges, 248 private universities, 383 government law colleges and 170 government varsities — offer law study programmes countrywide. Of them, the most prized are the 24 National Law Universities (NLUs) promoted by Central/state governments pursuant to the second-generation legal education reforms (1985) implemented by the Bar Council of India. Admission into NLUs is through the highly competitive CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) — in 2022 of the 61,574 students who wrote CLAT, a mere 2,175 were admitted.
