GLC manages to account for record 95 graduate jobs with strong BigLaw strike-rate (though majority of batch of 600 remains a mystery)

GLC Mumbai’s 2016 batch has confirmed a total of 95 jobs for roughly 600 odd students in its three- and five-year LLB courses, with 60 students placed via the placement cell, and 35 via candidates’ personal endeavours.

However, the figures do not mean that 505 of the 2016 GLC graduates will not have a job. Due to the size and less close-knit nature of GLC batches, it is understood that the placement committee was unable to confirm  what every single student is doing after graduation.

Full LLM records are also currently not available for the 2016 batch.

The last time GLC Mumbai has confirmed its campus recruitment stats was in 2011, when it accounted for a total of 50 jobs (Wadia Ghandy was again the top recruiter).

Placement cell stats

The placement cell, in which 160 students participated, has placed 45 students with law firms, 12 with corporates and 3 with counsel.

The largest law firm recuriter was Wadia Ghandy, with five job offers accepted.

Four students each were hired by Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Desai & Diwanji, Parimal K Shroff and Nilesh Ojha & Associates.

Three students were picked up by Khaitan Legal Associates, Manilal Kher Ambalal.

Other large firms to pick up students via the placement cell included Vaish Associates (2) and Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (1).

In the in-house market, Godrej Properties and Reliance Commercial & House Finance picked up three students each, with KPMG hiring two.

Independent efforts pay off

GLC students also had independent successes in procuring jobs with law firms, with five bagging jobs at Bharucha & Partners.

Two each found jobs Juris Corp and Mulla & Mulla, with individuals also taken jobs at Cyril Amarchand, AZB, Trilegal, Agama Law Associates, Advani & Co, PwC and KPMG.

A total of nine graduates found jobs in-house by themselves, with three confirming litigation seats.
