The fourth All India Bar Examination (AIBE) would be held in August 2012, said Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra, although the planned AIBE board has not yet been constituted.

The names of persons on the AIBE board would be finalised within a week, Mishra told Legally India today.

The board would take decisions on all matters related to the conduct of the AIBE, he said, including deciding on an external agency that can assist the BCI with the exam.

The BCI had met in Chandigarh on 5 May intending to decide the date of the fourth AIBE and to zero in on a third party agency, if any.

While the BCI did not manage to make a call on those points, it did decide on the members, including Supreme Court and high court judges, vice chancellors of national law schools and some eminent advocates, who would sit on the board, said Mishra at the time.

A source in the BCI declined to share the resolution because it had not yet been signed by the chairman.

The third AIBE was held on 8 January 2012 and resulted in a pass rate of 63 per cent. The second AIBE was held on 24 July 2011 and the first AIBE ever was conducted on 6 March 2011.

BCI should be responsible to put the dates of the exam or ATLEAST say in the website that EXAM data is not annnounced. its a question of the future of lawyer. We really don't understand why the exams are delayed and when it may condcut.

BCI has put the student in DARK ROOM.

Dear Sir

The profession of lawyer is very-very sacred work. BCI is highest & clean institute of INDIA. what they are doing with that job about AIBE is not fair. If they will do like that, To whom we will aspect about justice. We were waiting for whole one year. I am not happy with this type of behave.

When is the next AIBE . and last date for submission of exam. Model question papers etc.
After graduation, and entrance exam LAWCET and 3 years LLB course subjecting an advocate to another exam like AIBE , certified by a University established under Act , particularly people above 50 years of age and court exposure , may look like a unjust exercise. Instead BCI can add one more paper with the same questions in the 3/5 years course itself so that the time and money can be saved.
Can any one tell about the status of Writ petition in the SC on this AIBE ?. Y.Mohan rao 9347786777 E Mail
