Four new subjects added to AIBE X syllabus sans notification

A few weeks before the tenth edition of the All India Bar Examination (AIBE X) is scheduled to be held, the Bar Council of India has made a few changes to the syllabus of the exam.

As first pointed out by iPleaders co-founder Abhyuday Agarwal, four new subjects have been added to this year’s syllabus. They are Public Interest Litigation (4 marks), Law Related to Taxation (4 marks), Land Acquisition Act (2 marks) and Intellectual Property Law (2 marks). Moreover, the weightage for Family Law has been increased to 8 marks.

Additionally, four subjects have been omitted from the syllabus. These include Jurisprudence, Limitation Act, Environmental Law and Corporate Social Responsibility.

These changes have been effected without any notification from the Bar Council of India. The latest notification on the AIBE website concerns the extension of the last date for submission of the exam fees.
