Bar Council of India informed the Supreme Court that the syllabus for the upcoming All India Bar Examination 17 (AIBE17) will be released within 15 days and the exam will be held within three months. A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, S. Ravindra Bhat and M.M. Sundresh listened to the Bar Council of India’s challenge to the Gujarat High Court ruling, which allowed people with other jobs, whether full-time or part-time partial, to register as lawyers without resigning.
In the aforementioned proceedings, the Court has periodically issued orders to improve the quality of legal education in India, address shortcomings in the bar exam and investigate the idea of chamber placement for young lawyers.
In this regard, the Bar Association was instructed to submit affidavits to keep the Court informed of the steps being taken to realize its vision.
According to the most recent affidavit, the Bar Association has passed a resolution granting law graduates a 6 month window after the results of the Indian Bar Examination to register as a solicitor.
