CLAT 2022 Syllabus and Pattern
The CLAT syllabus for the BA LLB degree contains all of the disciplines that a candidate will need to prepare for the CLAT 2022 exam. The candidate should consult the CLAT curriculum not only to test the relevant subjects but also to determine which subjects are more important than others. 
Exam segment of the CLAT Syllabus
The CLAT syllabus for 2022 is divided into, Current affairs, Legal Interpretation, English, Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude, General knowledge.

The paragraphs would be 450 words long and derived from news, journals, and other sources. There would be questions based on such passages.
