Tips to solve Legal Reasoning section in CLAT
  • You will be provided with the situations and
    accompanying facts, the principle you need to
    apply and expected to arrive at an appropriate
    decision or make a judgment applying the given
    principle to solve the questions in the legal
    reasoning section in CLAT. Remember, you need to
    keep your opinion, judgment, viewpoints,
    arguments and prior knowledge at bay. Dont delve
    into what you think should be the right decision
    focus on what judgment call you should make
    applying the principle provided to you. There
    will be four options that you have to choose from
    and sometimes they will be so close that they
    will sound tricky. However, if you concentrate
    solely on the facts and principle, making a
    decision to solve the legal reasoning section in
    CLAT will be easier. OPUS provides you the
    gateway to navigate through these tricky

    time-consuming for many students because there
    were questions of varying difficulty and
    attempting all questions in the allotted time
    became a major challenge for aspirants. In 2014,
    while there were questions from criminal law,
    Hindu law, contracts and torts, there were none
    on testing legal knowledge, intellectual property
    rights (IPR) or international law. The team of
    CLAT experts at OPUS ensures you can tackle all
    kinds of questions and takes you extensively

  • The legal reasoning section carries 50 marks.
    However, over the last few years, there has been
    varying trends in the number of questions in CLAT
