CLAT PG 2021 was conducted on July 23, 2021, for entering into the Masters of Law (LLM) programme in various specializations at National Law University (NLUs) across India. The exam was a slight deviation from the previous year’s pattern. Earlier, there were 12 Comprehensions with 10 Questions each. However, this years’ exam had 20 Comprehensions with six questions each. Given below is the subject wise bifurcation of the paper:

Constitutional Law 34
Jurisprudence 8
Contract Law 12
Family Law 12
Criminal Law 30
Environmental Law 6
International Law 12
Companies Act 6

The Questions on Jurisprudence were fairly simple, and basic knowledge of the concepts was sufficient to answer most questions. In fact, questions accompanying Passage 1 (which was exclusively based on Jurisprudence) were inference based and could be solved to a large from reading the passage thoroughly. Passage 2, though based on the Arnab Goswami v. State of Maharashtra, does not per se deal with the judgment, rather based on the concept of liberty, and a number of questions in the passage were on the easier side.

The Passage on Art 300A (from DB Basnett (D) Through LRS v. Collector East District, Gangtok, Sikkim) was slightly unexpected and moderately difficult; however, even with a general understanding of the concept, one could at least partially attempt the passage. On the contemporary front, Passages 3 and 8 focused on the Babita Puniya v. Union of India and Common Cause v. Union of India were the most scoring and most expected passages. Focussing on contemporary legal development were also passages from Vineeta Sharma v. Rakesh Sharma and Padia Timber Company (P) Ltd v. The Board of Trustees of Visakhapatnam Port Trust through its Secretary. In fact, both passages on Contracts were from Padia Timber Case.

Another contemporary judgment included was Swapnil Tripathi v. Supreme Court of India. It was comparatively difficult because questions were based on referred judgments. Passages on Criminal law focussed on Section 439 and 311 CrPC. While the questions on Sec. 439 (based on excerpts from Aparna Bhat v State of Madhya Pradesh, Sangitaben Shaileshbhai Datanta v. State of Gujarat and Preet Pal Singh v. State of Uttar Pradesh) were expected because the concept of bail has been in discussion for the past couple of years, the questions on Section 311 were slightly unexpected and difficult.

The Passage on International Law was based on the concept of extradition, once again a topic that has been in discussion in the past couple of years. Passage on Environmental law, on the contrary, was based on static knowledge and was an intersection between constitutional law and environmental law. While the questions relating to the Constitution in this passage could have been easily attempted, the ones from environmental law were memory-based, and hence, trickier.

Unlike last year, when the consortium had been more inclined towards contemporary judgments, this time, the questions were equally divided between general principles of law and contemporary legal developments. Overall the difficulty level of the paper was moderate, and a lot of the questions came from expected topics.
