How LawSikho can help you prepare for the AoR exam  

We launched the AoR exam preparation course in February 2021. In December, four students attempted the exam and three cleared it. The fourth also cleared three of four subjects, and we are supporting him to clear the fourth in his next attempt. 

We currently have nearly 80 students in our AoR course. Another 160-odd students are working on the roadmap to become successful corporate litigators and will be attempting the AoR exam in the next 3-5 years. 

The best advantage you can give yourself is to start preparing early, because this is a difficult exam. You need to also manage your existing practice and improve your finances alongside your studies. 

Let me give you an example of someone who has achieved such results. 

This is Sandeep Sheregar, a LawSikho alumnus (September 2019) who worked in the finance sector for 22 years before going for an LLB. He earned his degree in 2017 and decided to start his own practice as a litigator in Mumbai. He didn’t have the time to work under a senior. Internships were out of the question. 

He took one of our courses, and after some initial success, enrolled in one of our most premium annual subscription programmes to increase his client conversions. 

It took him six months to get results, but by the second wave of the pandemic, when people were worried and anxious, Sandeep was shifting to a bigger office and had hired a team to manage his work.

Today, he has a team of eight, including a partner, and he has already increased his earnings by 10x compared to pre-pandemic levels.

He is also preparing for the AoR exam with LawSikho so that he can provide better services to clients, and has already worked on a few SC matters.

He made a few videos and attended some webinars which were published on LawSikho’s YouTube channel, through which another lawyer connected with him, and recommended him to an AoR with 10 years’ standing under whom he trained.
