  • The National Law University (NLU) Odisha has now mandated 25% reservation for domicile students — permanent residents of the state.
  • This is applicable to students across categories including undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
  • However, the reservation will also depend on the CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) score of students.
The National Law University (NLU) Odisha has now reserved 25% of its seats for domicile students — permanent residents of the state. This is applicable to students across categories including undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

"The domicile reservation will be effective from the 2020-21 academic year across the categories," said Srikishna Deva Rao, the Vice Chancellor of the university. The ten-year old university has nearly 350 seats in its ug (BA-LLB and BBA-LLB) and PG courses.

However, the reservation will also depend on the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) scores. This decision was made at a General Council meeting of the university presided by Naveen Patnaik, the state chief minister.

Students with at least 60% score in class 12 are eligible to apply for reservation under the UG courses. To gain admission into the postgraduate programme, the student must have an undergraduate law degree with a minimum of 50% marks — to be eligible for the domicile reservation.

This may also be applicable to the National Law College’s Bangalore campus, if Karnataka government passes the reservation bill.

“The National Law School of India (Amendment) Bill, 2019 will be moved to provide reservation to those students who have studied in Karnataka for at least 10 years,” said JC Madhuswamy, the law minister of Karnataka.
