Amity: Ton of desk jobsAmity: Ton of desk jobsExclusive: Sixty-five Amity Law School Delhi graduates have secured ‘desk job’ offers out of a batch of 136 students, with 11 additional law firm jobs still to be confirmed after interviews.

In total there were 15 confirmed offers from LPOs, 44 from law firms and three each from non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and corporate houses.

Among the law firms Khaitan Jayakar Sud & Vohra and Phoenix Legal were the largest recruiters respectively hiring four and three students.

Legal process outsourcing company EXL Services was the largest recruiter overall hiring five students, followed by Pangea3 with four, and Clifford Chance’s offshore legal services centre OSC Global Services and CPA Global picking up three each.

A small number of offers from legal process outsourcing (LPO) companies and law firms were rejected by students and are not included in those totals, explained the director of Amity Law School, professor MK Balachandran. Final results could only be confirmed after the end of the semester in July.

Over 50 organisations interviewed or offered jobs to Amity students and almost all participating organisations hired at least one student.

Balachandran told Legally India that outside of the 77 who were recruited or awaiting confirmation to join corporate, LPO or law firm jobs, 22 other students have opted for litigation and would join the chambers of various advocates.

Four other students were working under judges of the various high courts or the Supreme Court.

Balachandran added that 30 other students have opted to continue their higher studies in various Indian and foreign universities.

The details of the universities where the students are likely to pursue their higher studies was not available at the time of going to press.

@RGNUALITE....are you seriously from RGNUL?? the question arose in my mind coz firstly, we call ourselves as RGNULites and not RGNUALites.
And calling yourself as an RGNULite, better not pose a lame picture of yourself by referring to our VC as "SHE"...it simply shows how well aware you're about the college and the situation. So instead of targeting the attitude etc of RGNULites, you better concentrate on talking about whichever college you belong to because your comments clearly show you're not from RGNUL.

Dharma law chambers, Upadhayay and Upadhyaya, Lex Chambers, JIMA and associates and dozens of such firms pay around 10-15k per month.

Are these really law firm placements?

I did my calculations: there are 15 decent law firm placements.

Please don't mislead law aspirants with comments like: ton of desk jobs.

Look at the quantity of placements: 65 out 0f 136- 48% placements.

Look at the quality: More than 75% of students have been placed in low grade, low paying (maximum 15,000 per month) law firms!

Shameful!

1. Yes they are firms. primarily based in Delhi. The firms mentioned by four are primarily litigation firms ans this is what students of Amity Law School, Delhi (IP University) specialize in. Even now a look at the background of promising juniors at the Bar shall reveal many of them to be from our college.

2. For all those who believe that Amity Law School, Delhi is only about money. they should know that in fact it is the opposite !!!! As per to do fee structure of IP UNIVERSITY, students only pay Rs. 39000 Per Annum as total fees. I believe it has only been raised after the 6th pay commission to approx. 50000 Per Annum. Hardly overflowing with funds, wouldn't you say ?!?! Yet we manage to make our mark in the legal fraternity through our own hard work. Many student initiatives face the biggest hurdle of funds, yet we manage to pull them off through sponsorships and advertising.

AMITY LAW SCHOOL, NOIDA (AMITY UNIVERSITY) is known to charge approx. 1.5 Lakhs Per Annum exclusive of accommodation. However, that not being my College, I shall refrain from commenting on their achievements or performance.

I am glad someone made that distinction between the two colleges. Amity (Delhi) is primarily where it is because the students chose to take it there. It's their hard-work at internships etc. that lands them the job offers.
But at the same time, it is difficult for those w/o a legal backing to bag such internships in the first place. But everyone survives.
And if you thought Amity was about the money, I invite you to check out the library of both the Amity(s). Noida and Delhi. If Amity (Delhi) had money, I am sure there would have been better books in the library, unlike Amity Noida.
Well, besides that, all the n-brand law schools get a library budget from the govt. If i remember correctly NLIU Bhopal has a 3 crore and counting donation for their library. No doubt it is one of the best libraries.
But that's money. Amity (Delhi) is not quite so rich.
Next time, make sure you specify the college, as either Delhi or Noida (Will save you some trouble)

Now almost all the decent law colleges including the NLUs and some private law colleges has declare their recruitment figure for 2011 batch...The reports on LI shows that the almost the top five NLUs has scored good placement for their respective batches...and some other NLUs has perform exceptionally well for e.g. GNLU, Christ Law College etc.....But the latest three NLUs RMLNLU, CNLU and RGNUL has not perform so well....out of these three RMLNLU has tried their best and come out with some number far better than RGNUL and CNLU......CNLU truth is known to all....BUT RGNUL is generally consider as a silent school...for all these news....because the school has nothing to say abt their Placement.....as per the sources in RGNUL..........The placement figure of 2011 batch can bu summarized in following points:

The batch is consist of around 68 students, out of them one student is going for LLM in Oxford university,some other students also got clearance for foreign studies nut none of them confirm it yet.........few students got PPOs from second or third tier law frims e.g. dua associates, K R Chawala etc... and their was no campus placement in college till yet....the reason for all this not the students but the unexperienced adminsistration and the former VC Gurjeet singh..who denied to start the campus placement in college and clearly said that he will not talk to any firm or any other recruiter....the reason was unknown...students made all efforts to change his mind but they failed....the other reason was the politics in campus within batches ....students and faculty....the college administration has no interest in placement....students are thankful to the P& H High court to removing the Gurjeet Singh from the university....but till that time has passed....and 11 batch pass out without any result....currently the campus placement is going on at local level...with local firms in punjab.....its a matter of shame for the RGNUL administration....i have sincere concern for the students....we have seen the performance of the college in moots, debates, publications and other activities...students are far better than than other college....i hope the upcoming batch did not face the same problem....


RGNUL End Soon.......

There is such a gross variation in firm salaries as we have seen. And then so much deal about next generation legal reforms. When all the markets are being open (dude even retail now :P), we need an open legal market...NOW. Lets come together and DO IT NOW...

its a matter of great concern that people who have no idea about rgnul or consider themselves to be self proclaimed great legal luminaries are making such nonsensical comments here..i being a pass out from the first batch has seen the university progress along with my fellow batch mates. a new university without any doubt has certain start up problems and thats true for any university that is at its infant stage..and there is no denying this fact.but the way rgnul has progressed with our informative library, ppl doing great in moots, debates conferences, sports, extra curricular etc.is appreciable.and i put it very straight here..be it any law school in the county its the students who make it..u need to ask urself what have u contributed to the university or leave alone the university what have u contributed to ur own betterment. our previous vc or the present one both played their fair part and thats the reason we the students of rgnul are proud to be here, where we are..its a matter of shame that certain ppl are persistent in bringing down the name of their own college. and yeah a student getting into oxofrd from the very first batch in no small a deal...u need to then analyse that what level of academic standards rgnul sets for its students.so i request ppl not to degrade their own college in such public forums.

I am pretty sure none of the students, who have claimed himself/herself to be from RGNUL has got anything to do with the institution. @legal merchant must have a penchant for uttering non sense in a public forum, without due information. it was the FIRST batch of the institute guys..first batch. and in the first batch a student got through oxford. people have managed PPOs from firms, which even if not extravagant, are at least decent. i am pretty sure that from the next year onwards, we'll hit tier 1s

WTF...where the hell were these jobs when i passed out...ridiculous. I dont believe that firms like Amarchand and Luthra(as the list suggests) hired any students sitting for placements, those who got placed at these big firms must have known people in the fraternity. So what this list basically suggests is that this batch of Amity is the most 'influential'. Congrats, for whatever its worth!

Dont be misled by this article. A majority of the placements mentioned here are not campus placements. None of the tier 1, 2 or 3 law firms recruited any students directly from college and they're all pre placement offers. The only real campus placements in the list are the LPOs.
