NUJS finds early law firm homes for 30 finalists


NUJS Kolkata saw almost a third of its batch snapped up by law firms as Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan & Co, Luthra & Luthra and Trilegal together made 30 offers two weeks ago.

The four firms all interviewed a total of around 40 students on 15 and 16 July, with a considerable number of interviewees receiving more than one law firm's offer and in rare cases even being offered jobs by three firms.

Luthra & Luthra turned out to be the single top recruiter with a total of 11 accepted job offers to students across its Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore offices.

Amarchand Mangaldas' Mumbai region, which has so far made job offers to 41 students across four campuses, hired nine students from NUJS.

Khaitan & Co hired eight students predominantly for its Mumbai and Delhi offices, while Trilegal took on two NUJS students.

Students who interviewed with the four firms on 15 and 16 July were not allowed to ultimately accept more than one job offer.

NUJS' total 2011 graduating batch consists of around 95 students, of which only around five students are understood to have not elected to take part in the recruitment committee process.

An NUJS recruitment committee member said: "It seems like it is going to be a good recruitment season. Students have attempted to find out more about the firms which they prefer and are more thorough with their research, taking into account other factors than salary packages, such as their own preferred areas of work and growth prospects."
