Story to be updated.

The RCC explained in its statement:

This year we tried reaching out to a lot of law firms for the interviews and to get more assessment internships from the law firms, and companies as to increase the numbers of placements. The strategy has paid off, with 58 offers being generated for the 73 students who sat for the placements. The below mentioned offers include LLM offers and fellowships as well. We still await results of few interviews which have already been conducted. Post results of the same, the overall number is expected to increase.

This year, there has been an increase in the number of fellowships offered to our students which include renowned fellowships, namely, Teach for India and Yes Foundation Social Change fellowship. Further, LLM offers have been made from ILF Germany, School of Oriental and African Studies and Stockholm School of Economics.

There has been a considerable number of students who have opted to take the UPSC and Judiciary exams as well. Some students have also opted to pursue litigation as a career.

We believe that HNLU is doing better with every passing batch and this year as well we have witnessed an increase in the number of recruitments. We would like to thank our University, Vice-Chancellor, Alumni and our students for all their efforts.

The RCC also added in its statement:

The RCC this year was formed under the aegis of the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Sukhpal Singh and the Registrar Dr. Deepak Kr. Srivastava. Dr. Y. Papparao, and Mrs. Balwinder Kaur Sandhu were the faculty coordinators this year. The Student Co-ordinators of the RCC were Nipun Gautam, Astha Sinha, Om Kukreja, Prerana De, A.Rishi and Sharanya Mukherjee.
