The committee commented in an email:

We are immensely pleased to announce that over 50% of the students of our batch - with 39 jobs and 3 vacation schemes at reputed foreign law firms -  now have job acceptances. We would like to thank our Vice Chancellor and our professors for granting premier legal education to our batch, without which this would not have been possible. We would also like to thank our alumni who helped us in our Day Zero preparations as well as our senior RCCs which guided us at every step. Finally, we also extend our deepest gratitude to the recruiting entities for considering our able candidates and helping us successfully kick-start our recruitment season.

However, the students of the Batch of 2016 from NALSAR follow a diversity of interests and passions and thus many of them aspire to pursue a varied range of career interests in litigation, corporate houses, judicial clerkships, policy-making, research and academics, and so on. Thus, while 31 students sat for Day Zero in this month, the RCC shall continuously endeavour to call and host all other kinds of recruiters for our students and aim for a highly successful end to this recruitment season.

The committee included:

  • Akshita Amit
  • Jaideep Kodali
  • Malika Chadha
  • Megha Krishnamurthi
  • Paaras Pandey
  • Ranjini Gogoi
  • Soumitra Bose
  • Srijan Sahay
  • Utkarsh Mishra

NUJS Kolkata secured 40 jobs for its fourth years, NLSIU Bangalore’s Day Zero this year yielded 33 jobs and 4 vacation schemes, while NLU Delhi secured 20 jobs and 4 vacation schemes, NLIU Bhopal got around 22 jobs, GNLU Gandhinagar 24 jobs and NLU Jodhpur hauled in 31.
