For the 2018 batch as reported just now, NLU Jodhpur got between 26 and 32 accepted job offers by 27 April 2017 (depending on how you’re counting), from a total of 41 job offers.

The RICC commented in a statement:

The success of the recruitment process has to be attributed to the University’s Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. Poonam Saxena and Dr. Manoj Kumar Singh, Director of the Recruitment and Internship Co-ordination Committee. Additionally, we also thank the participating organizations for the continued support extended to us. We wish the Class of 2017 all the best for their future endeavors.
