According to the latest press release by the Bar Council of India (BCI), the All India Bar Exam (AIBE) has now been postponed to July 24, 2011. The second AIBE was supposed to be held on June 26, 2011 which has now been postponed on the request of the students that the exam date is clashing with other entrance exams.

The second AIBE is for new candidates, for Chennai aspirants and for students who could not clear the first AIBE. The first AIBE was conducted on March 6, 2011 at 45 examination centers all over India except Chennai where the Bar exam could not take place due to violent protests by some students and was later again postponed because of local State Elections on April 13, 2011.

BCI in the latest press release stated, “The BCI has received various requests from candidates/SBCs to postpone the next AIBE to allow for more candidates to take the AIBE and allow certain candidates to appear for various judicial examinations to be conducted across the country”.

The registration for the next AIBE is currently open and the same will be closed on June 24, 2011.

According to the press release, “Certificates of Practice for all candidates who successfully cleared the AIBE held on March 6, 2011 are currently being despatched and will be available for collection from the concerned SBCs (where the candidate is enrolled) from May 30, 2011 onwards. Candidates are requested to collect their certificate of practice from the SBC and to contact the SBC for the same. 

Certificates of Practice will not be provided for any candidates who have not provided the BCI with proof of their enrolment with an SBC as well as candidates who had provided incorrect DDs etc.– any candidates that have not yet done so are requested to send across the same to the BCI urgently. Candidates are also requested to look at the list of application discrepancies and data mismatches that have been put up on the BCI website”.
