NUJS Day Zero nets 20+ law firm jobs for 2014 grads

NUJS Day 0: At least 20 jobs
NUJS Day 0: At least 20 jobs

NUJS Kolkata students received at least 20 job offers for students from its 2014 graduating batch, after up to six law firms made a mix of campus and pre-placement offers (PPOs) around 30 April.

Amarchand Mangaldas was the largest recruiter, making two PPOs and five on-campus offers to NUJS students.

Luthra & Luthra made a total of five offers, while Trilegal made three offers, including PPOs.

J Sagar Associates (JSA) visited the NUJS campus to hire two students to begin in 2014, and Khaitan & Co made three job offers for its Mumbai and Bangalore offices.

The above figures were confirmed by each respective recruiting law firm.

AZB & Partners may also have made offers to students, which Legally India was not able to authoritatively confirm at the time of going to press.

A member of the NUJS’ campus recruitment committee (CRC) declined to comment, citing committee policy and an administration gag order.

This year, NLSIU Bangalore fourth-year students secured 24 jobs on their day zero, while NLU Jodhpur placed 11, according to their respective recruitment committees.

Around July 2011 at NUJS the above firms, excluding Khaitan & Co, had hired 25 students going into their final year to start in 2012, with other firms bringing that early-recruitment-season tally up to 41. Last year, NUJS’ CRC had also declined confirming day zero figures against a backdrop of a slackening economy and a larger supply of law graduates, as reported in Mint.
