Indian advocates permitted to practice in courts before bar exam

August 28, 2012 The Bar Council of India has changed regulation to allow newly enrolled advocates to practice in courts for a period of six months without taking the All India Bar Exam (AIBE). The change was made because the exam itself has been delayed following the termination of the contract between the Bar Council of India and Rainmaker, the agency that formerly administered the test.

The Bar Council held a meeting on 28 July 2012 to finalise the decision regarding which agency would be entrusted with conducting the AIBE, but no decision has yet been announced. On 30 July 2012 the BCI once again publicly stated that it would first finalise the agency entrusted with conducting the AIBE rather than employ the services of Rainmaker as a temporary measure.
