HNLU places 62 in ‘18 class of 150: State law dept biggest recruiter, 12 law firms, 4 companies, LLMs

HNLU Raipur placed 62 out of 150 students graduating their LLB this year, with a number of law firms, companies, policy organisations, LLMs and other places.

A total of 95 students had participated in campus recruitment activities.

The state department of law and legislative affairs maintained its track record of being the single largest recruiter from HNLU, recruiting 14 graduates from the class of 2018.

Singh & Associates was the law firm that recruited the most, at four graduates, followed by Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan (LKS) and RRG Associates (three graduates each).

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas was the only “Big 7” law firm among the other nine law firms to have recruited from campus, which also included TPM Solicitors and Consultants, Dave Girish & Co, PSA Legal, Bharucha Partners, Singularity Legal, Intll Advocare, Apprentice Legal and Themis. Each of these firms picked up one graduate.

From in-house, ICICI Bank (2), Tech Mahindra (2), Info Crunch (1) and Eastern Book Company (1) were the companies to have hired graduates from the batch.

Four graduates also bagged legal process outsourcing (LPO) jobs from Thomson Reuters (2) and Lex Process (2).

Other jobs included the office of an MP, advocate chambers, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, the LAMP fellowship, law officer for the Chhatisgarh State Environment Conservation Board, content writing and comedy writing.

6 graduates have LLM offers at Queen Mary University London (4), University of Melbourne (1) and the University of Vienna (1).

The RCC commented in a statement: “In the past two years, we have primarily focussed on getting assessment internships for students, a lot of which also turned into pre - placements offers. We also contacted as many firms, companies and other organizations as possible and brought some of them to campus for placement.

Some of the students have also opted for litigating and writing judiciary examinations. Numerous students have opted to take the UPSC and state PSC examinations.

We have been able to achieve the present result with the cooperation and constant support of our batch mates. With administration in better hands, we believe that HNLU might be able to increase the placements to even better numbers next year.

The Recruitment Coordination Committee this year comprised of Akshay Mankar, Anmol Bhalla, Ishan Agrawal, Manya Gupta, Merlin Tigga, Praharsh Gour and Pranjal Doshi.”
