- Tell us about yourself.
I am Prateek Tripathi, grew up in Lucknow. I have completed my graduation from Faculty of Law, Lucknow University and at present pursuing my LLM from National Law School of India University, Bengaluru
My Rank is CLAT exam (PG) 2018 was All India 85.
- Share your views on this Year’s CLAT LLM Paper.
This year the question paper has taken little shift as compared to past years questions papers. Questions from new subjects were asked which I was not expecting though. The Constitutional part was loaded with many case laws.(New and old both). The jurisprudence part followed the same path as questions were not very tough. The third part was little surprising as it included subjects like Negotiable Instrument property Laws.
- What is your strategy For the Exam?
I had no such strategy. I covered all pertinent topics which I was expecting in the exams and at the end practiced it from different sources.
- According to you, when is the perfect time for a final year student to start the preparation for CLAT LLM?
Well, this is very subjective. You cannot have any fixed answer for that. If you have little conceptual understanding of law, then 3-4 months preparation is sufficient to score good in the exam.
- Do you think that one month is enough for preparing CLAT LLM?
Well, this is also very subjective. It depends from which University you want to pursue your LLM. If you want it from top national colleges then one month preparation is certainly not going to help you. Just need to keep little more time in pockets.
- How have you conquered the Jurisprudence?
Read, understand and practice, this is what I did.
- How have you dealt with the Constitution?
Well, Bare Text knowledge is must for this part as most of questions were straight from the Articles. Moreover, noting down the recent Supreme Court decisions and having a fare idea of that case also helped me to score good in this part.
- How have you prepared for Other Law Subjects?
For the third part, I kept my self-limited. Instead of reading every statute under the sun, I focused just on Contracts , Criminal Law, IPR and Torts. (This is the sad part, as questions from the mentioned part were very limited)
- Is the information provided by Jurisedge Portal helpful for LLM exam aspirants?
I read many interviews on this portal which helped me during my preparation. Moreover, the materials were also very informative especially the Jurisprudence Part.
