AILET Counselling Process 2023 - Detailed Steps

The university will issue a call letter for counselling after the declaration of results. There are four steps involved in the NLU admission process, and those are as follows:

  • Check your roll number in the invite list
  • Commencement of counselling
  • Release of first provisional admission list
  • Pay balance fee

Step 1 - Check Your Roll Number in the Invite List

The invite list includes only names of aspirants who will score above the cut off for AILET 2023. The invite list will be released separately for both UG and PG admissions.

You will be eligible to appear in the AILET Counselling process only if your name is on the invite list.

Step 2 - Commencement of Counselling

You will be required to pay the counselling fee and submit the original documents and copies for verification to appear for the counselling process.

  • The admission officials will verify all the documents about admission requirements and keep the copies with themselves.
  • If your submitted documents do not meet the eligibility criteria of AILET, the university will debar you from the admission process.
  • It would help if you collected the acknowledgement slip after the payment of the counselling fee.

Step 3 - Release of First Provisional Admission List

NLU Delhi will release the provisional admission list and the waiting list after completing AILET Counselling.

The provisional list includes the names, roll numbers, and marks of shortlisted students under various categories.

If there are any leftover vacancies after the first round of the admission process, the university will release another provisional allotment list for the second and subsequent rounds.

Step 4 - Pay Balance Fee

If you are shortlisted for admission, you must pay around Rs.82,500 as the balance course fee, which is 75,000 for the LLB course.

If you cannot complete the admission process within the deadline, you will be disqualified, and your counselling will not be returned.
