Top 10 Tips to Prepare for AIBE 17

The Bar Council of India (BCI) conducts the national level examination, AIBE (All India Bar Examination). Candidates who want to obtain the “Certificate of Practice” to practice law must pass the AIBE. Candidates upon clearing the AIBE (All India Bar Examination), will be awarded the “Certificate of Practice”. 

The Bar Council of India (BCI) conducts the AIBE bi-annually every year. Candidates who are law graduates can only appear for the AIBE. The BCI will conduct AIBE in 40 cities in India in 11 different languages, English, Bengali, Gujrati, Hindi, Assamese, Marathi, Oriya, Kannada, Punjabi, Tamil and Telegu. It is not mandatory for law graduates to sit for AIBE (All India Bar Examination) but in order to practice law in India, they have to pass AIBE. Law graduates can practice law in their own state without appearing for AIBE. A law graduate can sit for AIBE any number of times, and post qualifying AIBE, they will be awarded a “Certificate of Practice” by the Bar Council of India (BCI). 

AIBE is a moderate level examination but gradually it is becoming difficult to crack. The candidates who are not able to clear the exam should buckle up their preparation level. Candidates should have a clear idea of the updated syllabus, the reference material must be up to dated and should solve enough sample papers. The AIBE is conducted to test the legal knowledge, aptitude, conceptual clarity and decision making skills of the candidates. AIBE was an open book examination till 2020, but starting from 2021, BCI changed the pattern and AIBE (All India Bar Examination) is no longer an open-book exam, but bar acts without comments are allowed inside the examination hall. It is, therefore, very important for the candidates to change their preparation strategy. In this article, take a look at some tips that will help you in your AIBE 17 preparation.
