NLU Delhi delays maiden recruitments after NUJS date clash, banks on 'situational' vantage

NLU Delhi postponed its first day of recruitment activities from last Friday (18 May), which clashed with NUJS Kolkata's "day zero" of fourth-year campus recruitment - to the first week of June.

NLU Delhi recruitment coordination committee (RCC) coordinator for the class of 2013, Devna Arora said: “The reason was that we wanted to avoid all kinds of clashes with the days zero of all other colleges. When we talked about this with the firms we were targeting, they agreed telling us that our advantage is that we are in Delhi.”

Arora told Legally India that NLU Delhi had rounded up on two possible dates for holding Day Zero initially – 12 May and 18 May, the latter looking more probable.

When NUJS also scheduled its Day Zero recruitment for 18 May, the firms NLU Delhi had approached informed the RCC that their recruiting partners will be headed to Kolkata, even though some people in recruitment will remain in Delhi and will be available for visiting campus.

Arora said that the top four to five recruiters had confirmed their intention to visit campus on Day Zero, whenever it may be held in the coming weeks. One top tier law firm is understood to have already taken written tests to shortlist candidates for the Day Zero interviews.

Based on the assurance of recruiters, and hoping to benefit from being situated in the same city as most of them, Delhi’s RCC decided to postpone the law school’s Day Zero to the first week of June.

“The idea was that being the first batch from our college to have campus recruitment, to recognize the fact that this is the first time we’re inviting firms, and we should be adjusting and accommodating. It is about building a long term relationship with these firms” explained Arora.

NUJS campus recruitment committee (CRC) for 2013 declined to comment on Friday’s Day Zero, when contacted this morning.
