Nalsar Day Zero: 34 early jobs for 77 grads • AZB biggest • [...]


Nalsar Hyderabad has already placed 34 out of 77 students who will graduate the LLB degree next year, as first published by Bar & Bench.

The Nalsar recruitment committee confirmed us that 17 of those jobs were sealed during the 7 April ‘Day Zero’ of recruitment at the law school, and 17 were gained through pre-placement offers (PPO).

AZB & Partners has so far been the biggest recruiter for the batch graduating in 2019, with 10 candidates hired already, including 3 PPOs and 7 Day Zero jobs.

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Luthra & Luthra, Trilegal, and Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and Khaitan & Co, in that order, were the other big recruiters, at least in terms of offers.

Although [...] doled out the largest number of offers on Day Zero with [...] (of which [...] were subject to internship), only [...] of those were accepted, in addition to [...] PPOs.

[...] made [...] offers on Day Zero, all of which were rejected. [...] jobs accepted by Nalsarites at the firm were all through PPO.

The reasons offers end up being rejected on Day Zeros, is usually due to prime candidates having been offered jobs by more than one firm on the same day, in which case they need to accept one and drop the others under most internal recruitment rules.

S&R Associates and Majmudar & Partners each also hired one student, though only through PPO.

Update 23:07: After a request by the Nalsar RCC, we have edited this story to remove the names and statistics of the firms whose Day Zero offers had not been taken up by students.

International firms Herbert Smith Freehills and Linklaters each offered one vacation scheme, both of which were secured (those are reflected in the table as accepted jobs, though technically they are only paid internship vacation schemes, that have a high likelihood of converting into a job).

A total of 35 offers were made on Day Zero. 24 students from the batch graduating in 2019 appeared for the Day Zero.

This year is an improvement for the RCC at the law school compared to the 28 jobs gained during last year’s Day Zero excluding one vacation scheme and one foreign law firm job.
