Bar Council Election and the Prospects of an Indian Bar Exam

Gopal Subramanium, the current Solicitor General was recently elected as the Chairman of the Bar Council of India. We wish him the very best as he pilots this body and the profession that it represents to new heights.

In an earlier post, we highlighted a Supreme Court ruling that relied extensively on a report by Mr Subramanium and mandated the conduct of bar exams this year. Now that he has been elected as the Bar Council Chairman, the prospects of such an exam in the near future seem real.
