Amarchand Mumbai's campus recruitment tally hits 41 out of 52 this year with GNLU


Amarchand Mangaldas' Mumbai region offices have made 2011 job offers for 41 students, most recently picking up 12 each from GNLU Gandhinagar and Nalsar Hyderabad, nine from NUJS Kolkata and eight from NLSIU Bangalore.

Last year the firm had recruited the equivalent number of freshers from only three campuses more than a month later.

Amarchand's Mumbai region, which for management purposes includes the Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad offices, was targeting a total 2011 recruitment figure of 50 to 52 students, explained Mumbai partner Vandana Shroff.

Last year the majority of Amarchand's recruitment season had finished with a tally of 40 to 45 in September 2009, as reported by Legally India, after the firm hired nine finalists from NUJS Kolkata, with the rest having been recruited from Nalsar and NLSIU.

After visiting NLSIU Bangalore in May, the firm visited NUJS Kolkata two weeks ago and Nalsar and GNLU over the last week. Shroff said: "The quality at GNLU was super – it was a tough choice."

She said that the firm picked up a majority of the top-ranked students from each college, except for a small number that wished to work abroad. "I can say with certainty that […] recruitment is at least 90 per cent of the toppers of each college," she noted. "That’s a pretty strong percentage."

GNLU campus recruitment committee convener and faculty member Ramesh Kumar said that their recruitment process for the batch of 2010-2011 started on 28 July and within two days students were selected by Amarchand, which was the first law firm to visit the campus.

Kumar said: "We are thrilled that 12 of our deserving students have offers from Amarchand Mangaldas. The credit goes to the GNLU alumni who are already working there and it’s because of their work [professional accomplishments] that we get recognition."

In 2010's final year batch only four students from GNLU received job offers from Amarchand, while a total of six were recruited in the 2009 batch.
