Nalsar 2015 final campus recruitments: RCC gets jobs for all 52 out of 74, half go to BigLaw

Nalsar Hyderabad’s class of 74 LLB students graduating this year have secured 52 jobs with domestic and foreign law firms, in house, Big Four consulting and other organizations.

Khaitan & Co and Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas were the largest recruiters from the batch.

All of the 52 students who subscribed to the law school’s campus recruitment process secured jobs, with 30 being absorbed by domestic law firms, 12 going in house, three hired by foreign law firms, two each by Big Four consulting and an entrance test preparation company and one each a legal start up and a research organization.

The recruitment coordination committee (RCC) said in a statement: “Building on our successful Day Zero conducted on the 18th and 19th April, 2014, we are pleased to announce that we have reached the 100% mark for placements for the graduating class of 2015.”

The placement season continued throughout the academic year culminating in May, 2015 when the final subscribers were placed. We saw a wide variety of organisations recruit from NALSAR while the choices of students have continued to diversify. We were pleased to welcome some entities for the first time and built on our time-honoured relationships with the others.

Whereas the upbeat market did help in the recruitment process, the lack of PSUs coming to law school campuses did mean we had to approach new organisations. This also resulted in a few candidates, who had originally subscribed to the RCC, dropping out of the RCC process to take the CLAT LLM exam which is the qualifier for such positions with PSUs which were earlier regular recruiters on campus.

The students who opted not to sit for placements have received LLM offers from leading foreign universities like Harvard, Oxford, SOAS, LSE apart from the one Rhodes Scholar. Some have opted to go in for litigation while others are taking UPSC, Judicial Services exams, Judicial Clerkships with one opting for entrepreneurship.

Last year at Nalsar, 71 students out of 78 subscribed to the RCC, with all of 71 getting jobs.

To compare historical placements at all national law schools and others, click here.

Legally India has requested a full break down of jobs, LLMs, etc of Nalsar students who did not participate in the RCC, in order to compile ‘recruitment power rankings’ for this year too.

It is understood that other colleges’ final 2015 placement figures are also on the way. Please get in touch with us at if you haven’t already and would like to share your college’s figures – early heads-ups are always preferred to give us the time to report accurately and fully.

Nalsar: Domestic Law firms

25 out of 32 Nalsar students joining Indian law firms will join the Big Seven firms of AZB & Partners, the split halves of former Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan, Trilegal and Luthra & Luthra.

One student also took a position at Cyril Amarchand’s volume transactional support group (TSG) unit.

Cyril Amarchand hired 8, including the TSG position, while Shardul Amarchand hired 2.

Alongside Cyril Amarchand, Khaitan & Co was the biggest recruiter with 7, followed by Luthra with 4 new hires.

RCC thanks ‘new academic model’

The RCC, consisting of Anandita Thass, Anjali Rawat, Archit Bhatnagar, Nishant Prasad, Preethi Correa, Rohan Muralidharan Iyer, Sandipan De, Tanay Agarwal and Yashashree Mahajan, wrote in  a statement:

We believe that the success of the batch owes a lot to the new academic model at NALSAR and we are very grateful to our Vice Chancellor Prof Faizan Mustafa and our Registrar Prof Balakista Reddy for their continued leadership, support and encouragement throughout the recruitment process. We would proudly point out that the NALSAR 2015 Class received the highest number of Day Zero offers among all the law schools and is the first to report the 100% mark. We would like to thank all the entities that have recruited our students for their continued faith in the quality and competence at NALSAR.

once again Khaitan & Cyril Amarchand are the largest recruiters. I'm really starting to wonder do these 2 firms even have that much amount of work !! They always seem to figure in the recruitment table of most NLU's.

ICICI and ITC quote a figure of 12-14 ish. I guess you get about 1 lakh per month. Infy is 8-9 ish per annum.

Confirmed that ITC pay the highest package. 17 Lakh per annum before bonus. But of course later progression and salary increase is slow. And office in Cal.

A link describing exactly what it is provided. In case you missed out on it, here it is: www.legallyindia.com/201404254643/Law-firms/amarchand-forays-into-lpo-style-practice-to-improve-due-diligence-volume-work

However, in case you were nudging towards it being an LPO; hope (i) that you had a hearty laugh, and (ii) grow-up quickly.

i really wonder how far you can go to justify your arrogance, FYI TSG will be paid less than half the amount AMSS pays to a L0 Associates, further Lawyers working in TSG are not designated as Associates but as legal executives. etc., and worst of all no promises or hope for shift to mainstream.

thats y many who were offered this position in Mumbai refused and those who joined quit the job to join tier 3 -4 firms.

last but not least m not demeaning the bright student who is going to join TSG just asking whether its a informed decision.. so there is no laughing on the student but seriously having a hearty laugh on you.. he hehehe

No, you weren't asking the interrogative you mention now. All you were doing was pointing out the obvious. As if the world won't know what a TSG is if you wouldn't point out.

With respect to whether it was an 'informed decision' - f__k no! It wasn't. Anyone can tell you that without knowing the details. The guy/gal didn't come to NALSAR to be left behind his/her peers. However, the person settled for what was on offer and the RCC was good enough to arrange something half-decent that places them in the 99th percentile among lawyers in the country.

So stop pointing out how someone didn't 'make-it' and so on and so forth.
