WORKSHOP CONDUCTED SUCCESSFULLY ON 7TH AUGUST 2021
Workshop on How to Crack the Advocate-on-Record Examination
The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has been seeing an upsurge in the number of young counsels filing and arguing matters before it. Only an Advocate - on - Record can file matters in his/her name before the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India. However, the qualification doesn’t come easy and the aspirations of several lawyers aiming to pass the test remain unfulfilled. With just a 20% pass rate, the Advocate - on - Record Examination is said to be one of the toughest to crack in one go. The AoR examination has law subjects lined up for 4 (four) consecutive days and predominantly tests young lawyers on their subjective knowledge of the Supreme Court Rules of Practice and Procedure, Drafting skills, Leading Cases, Ethics and Professional Advocacy.
This workshop aims to explore the practical nuances and procedural aspects of the Supreme Court litigation by undertaking an in-depth study (nature and application) of the Indian Constitution and Supreme Court Rules of Practice & Procedure, 2013, comparing the different types of jurisdictions that the Supreme Court possesses (Original, Advisory, Appellate, Writ, Review, Curative, Inherent and suo moto jurisdiction). These exhaustive Rules govern an Advocate - on - Record’s daily litigation practice, be it procedures of e-filing, mentioning, listing or arguing matters before the Apex Court.
We host Ms. Shriya Maini in this workshop. Ms. Maini is an Advocate-On-Record in the Supreme Court of India and currently practices at the Supreme Court of India, the Delhi High Court and the district courts at New Delhi. She graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Laws (BCL) programme on Dr. Mrs Ambruti Salve Scholarship from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. She specialized in International Criminal Law and was a recipient of the Oxford Global Justice Award 2015 for Public International Law. She has also been appointed as a Visiting Faculty for International Criminal Law at National Law University, Delhi, visiting faculty at the Renaissance University, and adjunct faculty for Human Rights at Llyod Law College, Noida.
In a nutshell, this is a tailor-made workshop from an Advocate-On-Record's desk. Along with preparing budding lawyers for cracking and acing the upcoming Advocate - on - Record (AoR) Examination, this workshop is also meant to introduce law students interested in dispute resolution and litigation (be it civil, criminal or constitutional laws) to an entirely novel world of Supreme Court Practice.
