examination-hall_by_comedy-nose Yesterday afternoon the BarHacker All India Bar Exam (AIBE) preparation indexes went viral in chain emails in law firm offices between 2010 graduates and fellow bar exam takers. One thread with our 14 indexes was forwarded in at least one major law firm with Lower Parel offices and across a number of national law schools.
