When shall be the next exam for Supreme Court Advocates on record and what shall be its eligibility criteria ? Thanks in advance
Mayank Kumar Advocate (EAST DELHI) 16 October 2013
After 4 years of enrolment as an Advocate, one has to undergo one year training under an AOR, before being eligible to sit for the AOR's Examination being conducted by the Supreme Court. That means it is a 5 year gestation period before one Advocate can think of sitting in the AOR Examination.
Please also note, there is a challenge to the AOR Examination being conducted by Supreme Court. Recently the Supreme Court has issued notice in SLP (C)No. 13537/ 2012 filed by the Supreme Court Advocates Association (SCAA) against the decision of the Delhi High Court challenging the Advocate on Record (AoR) system. This move may well cast a shadow over the continuance of the AoR system. We have to wait and watch the outcome.
