NLIU Bhopal's recruitment cell has successfully placed 33 students out of a batch of 78 with four to five pursuing LLMs in universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and the London School of Economics (LSE).

Last year’s total tally stood at 46, including eight judicial clerkships and four litigation jobs, while this year’s total number of graduates likely to be employed reduced slightly to 40.

The total number of students securing corporate jobs this year also reduced slightly from last year when a total of 34 students won desk-based jobs at various law-firms, corporate houses, public sector undertakings (PSUs) and LPOs either through the recruitment process or through pre-placement offers (PPOs).

Seven students have been shortlisted for judicial clerkship interviews in early June while three students have confirmed offers from Cambridge and Oxford Universities and the LSE. Around two other students are also understood to be considering LLMs.

According to NLIU Bhopal's recruitment committee a total of 50 students participated in the recruitment process this year out of a batch of 78.

Most of the law-firms and corporate houses that hirecd last year returned for recruitments this year, said a recruitment committee member, with a few new recruiters such as Madhya Pradesh's Aakriti Group also joining the hiring process (see table for breakdown).

NLIU Bhopal placements faculty-in charge Dr Raka Arya, declined to comment on the recruitment performance of this year as against previous years but noted: “The quality of students was really good this year and we have a promising current batch of students who will go through the recruitment process on 15 to 17 July.”

The NLIU Bhopal recruitment season started on 7 August 2010 with a three-day campus recruitment round.
