I am an IP professional at a Tier 3 . Will an LLM in IP from IIT KGP help me get an entry into IP teams of Tier 1 firms?
Yes. Experience & an advanced specialised degree helps. I was practicing tax at a local tier 2 firm & then went for an LLM in taxation. This helped me join a T1. However make sure the LLM is from a known university and your work ex is real.
Known University means IIT KGP chalega ? Or should it be from a top NLU?
Oh definitely chalega. Known means people should have heard it, the HR should not be like "yeh kaunsa university hai?"...central Universities, IITs, IIMs & NLUs for the legal circle are all well known. But more than that your work ex will definitely be more looked at.
NO placement. Good only for LL.B. Prefer NLUs / TISS/DU/SAU.

Being from a non-tech background, you cannot get a job.
Placement ka chodo. I already have an LLB including IP as a subject. I also have work experience of 1 year. I wanted to know whether that IIT KGP LLM in IPR would look good on my CV for Tier 1 recruiters?
Being an insider, i would suggest you get an LLM from any foreign univ. that looks better on your CV, relatively.
I would suggest you make a shift while working. T-1 only recruits LL.B candidates for the Patent dept. Don't regret after you come here.
