Summary: The date has been announced for the AILET PG 2024 exam. You compete with thousands of law PG aspirants for just 81 seatsThere is no time to waste! Get going and expedite your AILET PG 2024 preparations.

Since no changes have been made to the AILET PG 2024 exam pattern, you can blindly refer to and prepare concepts based on AILET PG's previous year's paper.

Last year with the change in exam pattern, AILET PG's overall difficulty level was relatively high. There is nothing wrong with hoping to have a relatively easy paper this year, but it's always wise to be prepared for the tough. 

Isn't it strange that AILET PG Syllabus and exam date are the same for all, yet some students outrun the rest in this competition? The significant difference is based on two parameters - 

  • Preparation Time 
  • Preparation Strategies 

Although there is no going back in time to start your preparations early, you can still use your time efficiently to exercise good AILET LLM preparation strategies from today.

This section is descriptive and consists of 8-10 questions, of which 2 are to be answered.

  • Recent case laws are also among the favourites of NLU Delhi. Learn and revise all the current case laws thoroughly. 
  • Previous year analysis of the paper indicates that Criminal law (CrPc and IPC) carries maximum weightage. Check the detailed article on Criminal Law Questions for CLAT PG and AILET LLM.
  • Constitutional Law and Jurisprudence are other subjects in AILET PG that hold good weightage. Be thorough with all its concepts, as there will be analytical questions in the LLM exam.
  • Work on your foundation. That is Polity? and related questions. Many of you must wonder how it is relevant to the PG entrance exam. 

Here is why: You will get questions through passages where the direct or indirect question could be asked regarding any law or amendment or the president's powers.

In such cases, the foundation would help you get through it. Practice it further from the previous year's question paper.

Prepare for the topics listed below:

  • Privacy
  • Sedition
  • Consideration
  • Defamation
  • UN and its working
  • Biodiversity Act 2002
