Nearly half of Nalsar finalists find law firm homes, Amarchand tops campus recruitment

Nalsar Hyderabad has placed 35 students with law firms out of a 2011 graduating batch of 81, as the in-house recruitment round is yet to begin.

The top recruiter was Amarchand Mangaldas, which hired 13 students in total. Amarchand was one of four firms that visited the Nalsar campus on 26 July, alongside Luthra & Luthra, Khaitan & Co and Trilegal, which have all recently increased their starter salaries to beyond Rs 10 lakhs per year.

Recruiter Jobs accepted
Amarchand Mangaldas (Mumbai and Delhi) 12 and 1
Ernst & Young (E&Y) 5
Khaitan & Co (Mumbai) 4
Majmudar & Co 3
Luthra & Luthra (Delhi and Mumbai) 2 and 1
Bharucha & Partners 2
Finsec Law Advisers 2
AZB & Partners 1
Desai & Diwanji (Mumbai) 1
Trilegal (Delhi) 1

Khaitan & Co hired four students for its Mumbai office, Luthra & Luthra took two students for its Delhi office and one in Mumbai and Trilegal Delhi saw one Nalsar student accept job offers to start in 2011, said recruitment coordination committee (RCC) member Danish Sheikh.

Majmudar & Co was the second recruiter to visit campus several days later, picking up three students, however the biggest recruiter after Amarchand was accountancy firm Ernst & Young (E&Y) which took a total of five students on.

The boutique start-up Finsec Law Advisers, which was set up by former SEBI executive director Sandeep Parekh earlier this year, made its campus debut and won two job offer acceptances.

Desai & Diwanji hired one student for its Mumbai office although the firm would still to visit campus next month, said Sheikh.

A total of 60 students chose to participate in the RCC out of a batch of 81. A large number of students chose to wait for recruitment by companies rather than law firms, explained Sheikh, which would happen in the coming months. “We are very happy with the law firm placements,” he said.

As at last month, law firms have also recruited heavily from other Indian law schools (update Legallypedia entries), such as NLIU Bhopal, NUJS Kolkata, GNLU Gandhinagar and NLSIU Bangalore.
