At LawMint, we looked at some typical time-lines around how the AIBE can fit into the plans of a student who wishes to begin practice immediately or take up higher studies such as LLM or prepare for the Judicial Services exams.

A simple Step by Step Guide to AIBE

This is a simple Step-by-step illustration of an ideal AIBE – All India Bar Examination preparation plan.

(1) Complete your LLB degree

If you have completed your LLB final exams in June, you will probably get your results in August. If you have cleared all your papers, you will receive your marks sheets or your provisional degree certificates by September.

(2) Apply for enrollment in your state Bar Council

You can apply for enrollment as a ‘practicing advocate’ on the basis of your marks sheets and your provisional degree certificate. So you can probably complete your enrollment by end of November.

(3) Enrol for an online course

Enroll for an online prep course to start your AIBE preparation. You can dedicate around an hour every day towards study.  You can explore our courses, which help you prepare for the AIBE and also other post LLB options like the LLM , Judicial Services, Patent Agent, Insolvency Professional.

(4) Start your Law Practice or prepare for LLM or Judicial Services

You can start your independent practice or apprentice with a practicing lawyer on the basis of your ‘Provisional Certificate of Enrolment’ from your State Bar Council.

On the other hand, if you don’t wish to practice immediately, you can simply start your dedicated preparation for LLM or Judicial Services exams.

Just remember that enrolling as a Practicing Advocate does not stop you from preparing for a career or preparing for higher studies; but if you take up any employment or enroll yourself in a full-time educational program, you will have to update your status with your State Bar Council and your ‘Practicing Advocate’ status will be placed in suspension; till you wish to restart your practice.

(5) Apply for the AIBE

Once BCI’s notification is published on the Bar Exam website, complete the online forms and submit your application.

(6) Pre Exam Preparation

As you get closer to the exam dates, increase the time spent in your preparation and focus in taking as many mock tests as possible. Taking mock tests and analyzing your performance is the best way to prepare for the exam. Read our article on how to approach the AIBE

(7) Print out the Carry-in material

You can print out and review the ‘Carry in’ material that is provided with our online courses. This material will consist of the summary of the Relevant Bare Acts and a brief overview of the various important Case Laws.

(8) Take the Exam!

If you have been diligently taking our mock tests and reviewed the Online Course material, Relax! You have studied everything that you need to clear the AIBE.

(9) Check your results

The results of the AIBE will most likely be released about a month after the exams.

(10) Get your Certificate of Practice from the BCI

Congratulations! You have now completed all the requirements to be a practicing Lawyer in India. You can continue your independent practice or apprenticeship without a break, on the basis of your AIBE results and need not wait till the Certificate of Practice is dispatched.

(11) If you could not take the AIBE due to any reason or do not clear it

Don’t worry, you can continue your practice unhindered for two years from the date of your enrollment with the State Bar Council; and you can prepare for the next AIBE .

If you enrolled for our AIBE prep courses and could not take or did not clear the exam, contact us for a Free Enrollment into the next year’s courses. (We will need a few details from your to validate your request.)

(12) Take your LLM entrance exams

LLM entrance exams are typically held after the LLB final year exams are completed. For example, the DU LLM entrance exams are held in the month of June.

So, if you have not taken the LLM entrance exams immediately after your graduation, you will have around one year of preparation time for the next exam.We strongly encourage students to take advantage of this one year gap and complete their AIBE exams also.
