I don't even know how Jindal is featuring in this conversation. Top tier NLUS like NLS, NALSAR, NUJS and maybe even NLUD & GNLU will gain because of reputation and alumni. Jindal will have to battle it out with the lower ones and outside NLUS, it may lose to the likes of Symbi and ILS because of the legacy and alumni.
Haha why should anyone care about your extra curriculars? What amazing communication skills do you have that other people don’t ? This is such wishful thinking. If foreign law firms come and set up offices here and if they hire Indian lawyers they are gonna do what they have done all these years to hire Indians to work in their country- they are gonna go with people who have the best grades, and the best internships and references. Don’t stop studying stupid.
Today's TOI quotes Sudhir Krishnaswamy as saying that we welcomes liberalisation and NLSIU has an edge. Sudhir will definitely use his connections, as a good VC should. High time alumni VCs are appointed to other NLUs.
1. Adopt a vacation scheme system
- NLUs would generally stand at an advantage here.
2. Collaborate with law schools on teaching/research and select talent through these channels
- This depends entirely on admin. Law schools with VCs who are dynamic have the greatest advantage. Jindal and NLSIU lead, but remember that new VCs take office at several NLUs this year. Another alum VC like Sudhir could give stiff competition. Also, new schools like BITS and Jio will be coming up.
3. Give more emphasis to communications skills and extra-curriculars over mere grades
- Kids from elite schools will probably benefit, whether at NLUs or Jindal or Symbi or GLC.
4. A little bit of virtue signalling (e.g preference to students who write papers on caste discrimination or intern with Greenpeace)
- "NALSAR Joe" and Co 😎
