The written test is 140 points, of which 75 points for objective MCQs and 65 points for subjective questions. The interview costs 10 marks.


All applicants applying for admission to the program must appear at the NLSAT. The NLSAT will have a single question paper consisting of two parts – Part A and B. All candidates must try both parts of the question paper. The exam has a duration of 150 minutes.


Part A

In the objective test, applicants are checked for the following:

  • English comprehension (25 points)
  • Current (25 Mark)
  • Critical Reasoning (including logical reasoning and legal aptitude) (25 points)

part B

The syllabus for the subjective test is as follows:

  • Legal suitability / justification (50 points): Legal aptitude consists of problem-oriented questions to which short answers are sought. Legal knowledge is not expected. This section contains 10 questions of 5 points each.
  • Current (15 points): Current consists of an essay of no more than 500 words. Students must answer one of three options. Applicants will be tested on their knowledge of the subject, their ability to make strong written arguments, and to write a well-structured essay. Legal knowledge is not expected.

Candidates will be invited for an interview based on their rank in Part B of the NLSAT. The interview, which is the third and final stage of the admission process, is assessed with a maximum of ten (10) points. During the interview, applicants are assessed on basic articulation skills, original thinking, logical reasoning, and their passion for law and public service. The jury for the interview consists of scientists and renowned lawyers.
