To practice before the highest court of the land is a privilege. The first step to achieve this is to be an Advocate-on-Record. The Supreme Court's Advocate-on-Record examination is one of the toughest examinations and is held under the general supervision of a committee of three Supreme Court Judges to be appointed by the Chief Justice of India. Only an Advocate on Record can file and plead a case before the Supreme Court.

The papers for this examination are set by the Board of Examiners which is nominated by the Committee of three judges. This Board of Examiners is of senior lawyers practising before the Supreme Court. They not only set the papers but also evaluate them.

To clear this examination, which comprises four papers requires sincere and methodical preparation. The four papers are 1) Practice and Procedure of the Supreme Court, 2) Drafting & Advocacy, 3) Professional Ethics and 4) Leading Cases.

This course comprises 10 live classes, by Dr Charu Mathur, and 32 recorded lectures from our rich video library, delivered by Mr Namit Saxena (2nd Rank Holder in AOR Exam 2019). Recordings of live classes will also be provided.
