2.1  Freeze option: If the candidate is satisfied with the allotted seat, accepts it, and is not interested in participating in further rounds of seat allocation/ counselling, they may ‘Freeze’ the seat allocation.
2.1.1  In order to ‘Freeze’ their seat in the First or Second round of counselling, the candidate must pay the Confirmation Fee within the stipulated time in the Admissions Counselling Calendar in para 7 below.
2.1.2  A candidate who selects the Freeze Option and pays the Confirmation Fee (in the
First or Second round) will NOT be considered in subsequent rounds of counselling.

2.2  Float option: If the candidate has not been allotted their first preference NLU and chooses to leave ‘open’ the possibility of getting a higher preference NLU seat they may choose the ‘Float’ Option.

2.2.3  Under the Float Option, the candidate may hold the seat allotted to them, and if they are allotted a higher preference NLU seat in a subsequent counselling round, they shall move to that more preferred NLU.

If the balance University Fees already paid by the candidate in a previous counselling round is higher than the University Fees in respect of the candidate’s higher preferred NLU seat allotted to them, then they shall receive a refund of the excess amount paid by them. Candidates shall approach the NLU concerned directly in order to receive such refunds.
2.2.5  A candidate who has chosen the Float Option must, at the end of the counselling process, Freeze the available allocation or Exit the Admissions Counselling Process and forfeit the Confirmation Fee.

PRESIDENT, CONSORTIUM OF NLUs  CONVENOR, CLAT 2023
Delhi University (DU) is expected to launch a five-year LLB programme in the 2023-24 academic session.
Currently, students can pursue a three-year LLB programme at DU after completing their graduation. Once the five-year programme is launched, students will be able to take it up right after Class XII — like in other national law universities.

Speaking to TOI, senior DU officials said the university is planning to offer two kinds of programmes — BA LLB and BBA LLB. The proposal to launch the five-year programme has received in-principle approval from the varsity’s academic council and executive council, they said.
The university is in the process of finalising a location to set up a campus for the new programme and the same will be done after receiving approvals from various stakeholders, including the Bar Council of India. The course structure is also in the process of being designed, officials said.

A senior university official, who did not wish to be named, said, “Once the programme is launched, it will temporarily be based out of DU’s main campus till we have a separate building as per the norms. In the first year, there will be around 60 students each for the two programmes and by the end of five years, the total number is projected to be 600. We need to have a long-term plan. Hence, the university is in the process of finalising details about having a separate infrastructure for the same.”
