  • CLAT 2008: National Law School of India University, Bangalore-Common Law Admission Test, one common exam for law aspirants was organized.
  • CLAT 2009: NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad-Earlier it was scheduled on May 17, 2009 and later re-scheduled to May 31, 2009 as the question papers got leaked.
  • CLAT 2010: National Law Institute University Bhopal
  • CLAT 2011: West Bengal National University of Juridical Universities, Kolkata-The law aspirants were disappointed with the standard of the examination. Moreover some of the answers of various questions were even underlined due to the negligence of the organizers.
  • CLAT 2012: National Law University, Jodhpur-Several of the questions were set out of syllabus and the pattern was entirely changed. Moreover errors crept in the published rank list and a fresh rank list was put up in place of the wrong one.
  • CLAT 2013: Hidayatullah National law University, Raipur-Introduction of the new marking system. As per the negative marking system, for every wrong answer, a deduction of 0.25 marks (one-fourth) was made from the total marks secured by the examinee.
