The All India Bar Examination (AIBE) X, which was finally conducted yesterday after one full year, was “very easy” to score on according to one candidate.

Just when you thought no more delays were possible with this 10th All India Bar Exam (AIBE), which is already running on a razor-tight timetable, the Bar Council of India (BCI) has quietly amended a two-day old notification, delaying the release of candidates’ exam admit cards by two days to 18 March 2017, which is only 8 days before the exam date of 26 March.

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has extended the deadline for registering for the 10th All India Bar Exam (AIBE) to be held on 26 March by a week, apparently after requests from candidates and state bar councils.

ITES Horizon is back as the Bar Council of India’s (BCI) official contractor for the All India Bar Exam (AIBE). Or rather, it never left, despite the BCI chairman having confirmed in 2016 that the contract had expired and saying it would be put up for a tender.

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has increased the fees of the All India Bar Exam (AIBE), which is obligatory for any law graduate who wants to practice law to pass, from Rs 2,500 per candidate to Rs 3,500 (with scheduled caste and tribe candidates remaining on Rs 2,500).

Those who excitedly jumped in to register for the tenth All India Bar Exam (AIBE), that was “tentatively” postponed by a month to 26 March after registrations opened 12 days late on 16 January, weren’t set to go after all, according to a notification on the official AIBE website.

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has opened up registration for the All India Bar Exam (AIBE) X with a delay of only 12 days after the start of registrations was previously scheduled for 6 January 2017, while also postponing the exam that was “tentatively” scheduled to be held on 26 February 2017 to a tentative date of 26th March.

According to the Bar Council of India (BCI) official All India Bar Exam (AIBE) website, the “tentative” date for the next bar exam, which is compulsory for law graduates to pass before entering practice, has been set for 26 February 2017, with registration “likely to start” on 6 January 2017:

Results for the ninth All India Bar Exam (AIBE) may finally be nearly available on the official website, although first reports suggest that the link doesn't actually work.

The results to the All India Bar Exam (AIBE) 9 will be out on 16 May, announced the Bar Council of India (BCI) on the official bar exam website:

Chinese authorities have pledged to reform the country’s qualification system for those who want to enter the legal profession.

A statement jointly issued by the general offices of the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council on Sunday said the system will be improved to ensure those engaged in law professions are “faithful to the Party, the country, the people and the law”, reported Xinhua.

The current system requires specific exams for four professions, namely judges, prosecutors, lawyers and notaries, but the new system combines them into one single exam and extends it to more professions such as those that involve the imposition of restrictions on the rights of citizens and corporate bodies, or auxiliary positions in the justice system.

Those who enter the legal professions shall also receive a unified pre-service training, it added.
