Daily Current Affairs for CLAT & Other Law Exam: 1st July 2022

By Anupam Kawde|Updated : July 1st, 2022
  • Current Affairs plays a vital role in the preparation of CLAT 2021 and other law exams. Current Affairs keep you updated about the happenings around the world. The majority of questions asked in the exam are from the latest current affairs. 
  • Current Affairs not only keeps you up to date but also provides you a better perspective and knowledge about the important burning issues worldwide.
  • The ‘General Knowledge, including current affairs section’ has witnessed the most drastic changes. The questions that were earlier directly asked have now been replaced with passage-based questions. Due to this change the section which was earlier an economical one in contrast to time consumption has become too lengthy and time-consuming.
