Exclusive: CNLU Patna’s second batch of 80 students found twenty-five jobs in its 2011-12 campus placement, with legal process outsourcing (LPO) companies and the All India Reporter (AIR) accounting for 80 per cent of jobs.

Out of a batch of 80 students, sixty-eight sat for placements this year.

A total of 11 CNLU students will be joining LPO Quislex, the company told Legally India, confirming the figures supplied by two campus sources. LPO Pangea3 picked up three students, confirmed several CNLU students and faculty.

Six students accepted jobs at the All India Reporter (AIR), according to sources.

Two students were hired by law firm DH Law, which recently opened an office in Patna Legally India reported earlier this month.

Law firms Bhasin & Co, Singh & Singh and Global Law Associates in Delhi hired one student each.

A faculty member responsible for recruitment at CNLU told Legally India that Quislex had hired 23 students, while another Delhi-based law firm had hired two students. Quislex said it hired 11 from CNLU, while the law firm denied hiring any CNLU graduates when contacted by Legally India.

One student has accepted a PRS Legislative Research LAMP fellowship, which provides an opportunity to students to work with members of parliament (MPs) and understand the policy-making process of the country.

One student has been offered the Gandhi Fellowship, which is a two-year intensive programme that intends to develop the leadership abilities of students.

Faculty and recruitment coordination committee (RCC) members told Legally India about three offers from universities abroad for LLMs.

Last year CNLU students went on a hunger strike to attract attention of the government over the dismal situation of the placements, which ended after three recruiters, including the AIR, visited the campus and made offers.
