Treat as representation plea to hold CLAT in local languages: HC to BCI – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has asked the Bar Council of India (BCI) to treat as a representation a plea seeking holding of the Common Law Admission Test of 2020, and those in future, in all local languages.

The court said as the forms for CLAT 2020 have to be deposited by June 30, it would be preferable that the BCI takes a decision prior to that if it was feasible.
