NLIU 2012 batch: 31 jobs across Amarchand, ICICI, LPOs as judiciary proves popular

NLIU: Fairly satisfied
NLIU: Fairly satisfied
Exclusive: Around 50 out of 82 NLIU Bhopal students graduating this year participated in the campus recruitment activities, out of whom 31 found employment with recruiters led by Amarchand Mangaldas, two legal process outsourcing (LPO) units, a public sector undertaking, a private company and ICICI Bank.

It is understood that three to four out of the 50 placement participants are awaiting responses to Supreme Court judicial clerkship applications, while around 5 applied for LLM degrees.

Out of the 31 students with corporate job offers via the placement committee, Amarchand Mangaldas and ICICI Bank recruited five each, followed by four that were picked up by the LPO Pangea3.

Two students each were hired by Trilegal, Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan, public sector undertaking (PSU) Bharat Petroleum, and Clifford Chance’s captive LPO, OSC Services.

Phoenix Legal, PXV Law Partners, Majmudar & Partners, Desai & Diwanji, TPM Consultants, Link Legal, Tempus Law, Dave Girish & Co, and Indo-US insurance JV Max New York Life Insurance made one hire each.

Bajaj Allianz is understood to have shortlisted three candidates, although no offers have yet been made. Roughly 50 per cent of the remaining students that are part of the cell sat for various judicial services examinations.

Vinesh Chandel, student member of the university’s placement committee said: “With a placed percentage of 70 per cent, we’re fairly satisfied with the way the placement scenario has panned out. For the first time, our junior batch has had ‘Day 0’ of their placements in the month of April 2012. We hope that this experiment yields even better results.”

Graduating student Bishen Jeswant commented: “The PCC, especially Vinesh, has worked very hard and all of us are thankful to them for all the effort they’ve put in. NLIU has given us fantastic opportunities to find our calling over these years, and each and every student should be grateful to the institute for all that it has given us, culminating with a job for many in their final year.”

“It is also great to see that not everyone runs after a high-paying job, with many students writing the Civil and Judicial Services Examinations. Education from a premier institution such as NLIU puts us in a good position to contribute to growth of our country, and we all should ideally jump at this opportunity which is not available to most.”

At NLIU’s so-called day zero on 16 April 2012, Amarchand hired four and Trilegal two fourth-year students.

Khaitan & Co, which had hired six NLIU final year students in 2011 and three fourth-year students from the 2013 batch, recruited none from the 2012 graduating class.
