The Bar Council of India (BCI) on Monday told the Delhi High Court that it will place on its website the statement of marks for candidates who appeared in the All India Bar Examination (AIBE) held on March 6.
The examination tests the skills and basic knowledge of those aspiring to practice law.
Justice S. Muralidhar was hearing a petition filed by Anoop Prakash Awasthi, who pleaded for uploading the exam result on the BCI website.
“The BCI has decided to place on its website the statement of marks in respect of the candidates who sat for the AIBE on March 6,” said the bar council.
Any law student graduating in academic year 2009-10 or later is required to appear in the AIBE (after enrolment as an advocate) in order to practice law.
This is the first time that a qualification examination for practicing law in India has been put in place and successfully conducted.
More than 22,000 law graduates had enrolled for the AIBE held on March 6 across 27 cities and 44 different test venues.
