    CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) covers most of the top law colleges in India which includes NLSIU Bangalore, NALSAR Hyderabad and quite a few more. Symbiosis Law School is also good and one of the top colleges. However, qualifying through CLAT gives you access to more colleges, some of them better than Symbiosis. We suugest you to appear for both CLAT and Symbiosis to maximise your chances.
