The Advocate-On-Record, Supreme Court Examination:

The examination for Advocate-on-Record (‘AOR’) is one of the most prestigious and challenging exams for practicing lawyers in India. The AOR exam is conducted every year under the overall supervision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and is set and evaluated by a panel of senior advocates. It is only an AOR who can file a case and plead before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India which makes this exam one of the most sought-after exams for lawyers in India. The AOR forms the elite club of Supreme Court lawyers (Yes! There are less than 3000 AORs in India as of 2021!) who play a major role in the decision-making process of the Supreme Court that has a huge impact on society at large. With only 18 Advocates being designated as AORs in 2021 and 253 in 2022, this is surely one of the toughest legal exams in India! The AORs at the Supreme Court have a rewarding and fulfilling career and are often among the top-notch lawyers in the country.
