About National Law University (NLU)
National Law University, Tripura (NLU) is the 25th University (NLU) founded in October 2022. Earlier, the university was likely to start the admission process this year but, it cancelled the BA, LLB, and LLM admissions for the academic year 2022–23 on the ground of state domicile quota just a few days before classes began.
Previously, NLU Tripura provided 150 seats to the CLAT applicants for its 5-year LLB programme whereas 50 seats were allotted to the LLM programme, both of which were listed on the List of NLUs that were accepting CLAT Scores.
