The first of the three big law entrance examinations (the other two being SET and CLAT) - the AILET, was conducted yesterday at dozens of examination centres all over India. While there was some amount of discontent among some law aspirants regarding the relevance of questions, the paper was surely a balanced one. Here's a detailed analysis.
The National Law University, Delhi established in 2008 is a premier Law University in the country. Thousands of students work hard throughout the year to make it to NLU-D by taking their entrance examination - All India Law Entrance Test (AILET), that was conducted today. Right after Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), AILET is the second most awaited and biggest national law entrance exam in India. GyanCentral's Ushnota Paul spoke to various AILET 2013 candidates from all over the country, and took a review of the exam from students walking out after the 90 minutes long examination.

This anecdote about Holmes and Watson is legion. Once they had gone camping and hiking, and as night drew in, both of them retired to bed. Holmes asked Watson, "What do you see above?" Watson looked up, stared for a bit, and started describing the open night sky, the galaxies, and the myriad mysteries that it held. When he had paused to take a breath, Holmes, with bemusement and irritation writ large on his face, asked, "Don't you see, that somebody has stolen our tent?!" The takeaway - too often, we deliberately or mostly subconsciously lose ourselves in the maze of trivia, and forget that "the devil lies in the details", and more pertinently, as Holmes used to say, "Elementary, my dear Watson!"
Better late than never, so goes the saying. And, it is never too late to do a good job! These, and not any kind of apprehension or despondency, should be reigning supreme in the minds of all those among you who have just started on your law school entrance examination prep. This post would have come earlier, but for the fact that I wanted all of you to wade through the seemingly choppy waters, get knocked around a bit, find your feet somewhat, before dishing out advice or "expert-speak" (anyway, there's already too much of it out there).
Imagine studying in a law school spread over 195 acres and that shares boundary with hills and jungles despite being situated in the heart of the cosmopolitan city. Impressed? There is even more for you. Imagine studying in a law school that has given 3 Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of India besides numerous High Court Judges, Advocates and Politicians of national stature which epitomize its rich historical background.
