Next bar exam will be held on 25 November: BCI

AIBE: Better late than never?
AIBE: Better late than never?
Breaking: The next All India Bar Exam (AIBE) would be held on 25 November 2012, announced the Bar Council of India (BCI) today.

The BCI secretary published a notification on the body’s website, stating:

It is notified that the Bar Council of India is holding next All India Bar Examination on Sunday, 25th November, 2012. Other details will be notified soon.

In late August the BCI announced that the bar exam, initially hoped to be held in the first half of 2012, would be delayed to take place in October or November.

The delays caused in part by the regulator tendering the contract to assist it with the AIBE to a third party organisation.

BCI chairman Manan Mishra told Legally India that “there was no chance” that the previous AIBE contractor, Rainmaker, would conduct the exam.

However, while waiting for the exam, graduates would be allowed to practice providing they entered into an undertaking to pass the exam later.

At the time of going to press Mishra was unable to comment further because he was in a meeting.
