Rainmaker to run bar exam, relaunches BarCouncilofIndia.org today (UPDATE)


Legal market services provider Rainmaker will run the proposed bar exam for the Bar Council of India (BCI) as the BCI is set to unveil its new website at 1pm today which was set up by the company.

It is understood from sources close to the matter that several weeks ago Rainmaker had approached the BCI to organise the carrying out of the exam and the instruction was confirmed today. [updated after confirmation of instruction]

The Hindustan Times reported today without citing any sources: "Rainmaker will also assist the council to create a database of lawyers across India and work out a common legal admission test for law schools across the country. As part of this initiative, Rainmaker has revamped BCI's website which will be inaugurated on Wednesday by Union Law minister Veerappa Moily.

BCI chairman and solicitor general Gopal Subramanium will present the council's vision document on what steps it will initiate to curb the mushrooming law colleges, without adequate infrastructure, in the country."

Later today Legally India will report on the event, which will be followed by a press conference at 1pm.

Rainmaker was started up by several graduates from NLSIU Bangalore in 2007 but was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.

The bar exam is scheduled as an open book test to take place in December and will act as a prerequisite for graduating law students to practice at the bar, as revealed by Legally India on 14 May.
