The Bar Council Of India has decided to postpone the All India Bar Examination which was to be held on August 16 due to the rising corona cases.
BCI has taken this decision to prevent further spread of COVID-19 among students. A resolution adopted on 29 July took the decision.
Furthermore, in a writing petition against the Union of India for financial assistance and a soft loan of Rs 3 lakh for poor lawyers, the bar authority has been given to bar leaders throughout the country to represent lawyers at the Supreme Court.
AIBE is a nationwide review aimed at evaluating a potential advocate for law enforcement.
‘Taking into account the new pandemic (COVID-19), the Council agreed to postpone the All India Bar Examining which was held on August 16th and decided to extend the receipt by candidates until August 31st of the year (to date),’ the resolution said.
In a virtual meeting between BCI and the members of all the councils and high court bar associations of state councils it was agreed that in a written appeal to the Union of India for financial assistance and a soft Rs 3 Lakh loan each, the apex bar authority would represent lawyers before the Supreme Court.
The BCI has reported that a vast majority of lawyers have to live in wretched circumstances because of the physical court’s ongoing suspension, leading to loss of income and drainage.
