BCI will only issue formal statement of state of bar exam next Thursday, 25 November

An email from the BCI has confirmed that the bar exam date has been “pushed” and that the body would make a formal statement on 25 November.

The email from the BCI’s official bar exam email address responded to a query by 2010 graduate Siddharth Shekhar Seth and stated:

"The date of the AIBE has currently been pushed. The BCI will issue a press release on November 25, 2010 intimating the full details of the new date etc. Dispatch and processing of applications is continuing through this period."

BCI member are scheduled to hold a meeting this weekend in Chennai, expectedly without chairman Gopal Subramanium present, to discuss how to proceed.

One source close to the BCI told Legally India yesterday (17 November) that a release might be released then. This plan now appears to have been postponed until after the meeting.

The deadline for bar exam applications was earlier postponed to 15 November and has not been extended, although the original exam date of 5 December is most likely to now be moved to 6 March 2011.
