Nalsar RCC maintains score with jobs for all 43 2012 participants, bar aspirants lead non-participants


Nalsar Hyderabad’s recruitment coordination committee (RCC) for 2012 placed all 43 of its campus placement participants from the batch of 72 students graduating from the law school this year. The 100 per cent target hit in campus placement spanned 14 Indian organisations and two foreign law firms.

Out of the 29 non-participants while some have accepted LLM offers and judicial clerkships, most will join court practice.

Out of the 43 jobs secured, 29 resulted from Nalsar’s so-called “Day Zero” for the 2012 batch, that was held on 15 April last year.

In the final count, 34 students were placed across Eight Indian law firms.

Indian Law Firms

Luthra & Luthra led the recruitment tables with nine hires, while Amarchand Mangaldas and AZB & Partners came a close second with seven each.

Khaitan & Co Bombay and J Sagar Associates (JSA) each made three hires.

Trilegal and Bharucha & Partners recruited two students each.

Majmudar & Partners engaged a student for its Bombay office.

Foreign Law Firms

Three students accepted roles in two foreign law firms.

Linklaters recruited two, while Allen & Overy made one hire.

In-house and LPO

Seven students accepted in-house roles, while one went for the LPO Pangea 3.

ICICI Bank was the lead in-house recruiter with three recruits, while Glennmark Pharmaceuticals in Bombay recruited two students.

Dr. Reddy’s Pathlabs and Infotech made a hire each.

Other Graduates

13 out of the 30 students who did not sign up for campus placement are inclined to join the bar.

Five students will pursue an LLM, including one each at Oxford University, Cambridge University, New York University, Lieden university and London School of Economics.

Two students gear up to join judicial clerkships, while two plan to appear for the civil services examination.

Details about the plans of five remaining students who enrolled in Nalsar through a programme of the Bhutan government and who did not participate in campus recruitment, were not clear.

Nalsar’s RCC for 2011 had also hit the 100 per cent target for campus placement participants, though it had secured 16 more jobs for the batch passing out last year.

A number of companies such as Ernst & Young, KSK Energy Ventures, Hewlett Packard, GMR, Bharat Petroleum, and others which had visited campus last year, did not recruit any from the class of 2012.

Also, the number of law firms that hired from the class of 2011 was double the number of firms that recruited from this year’s graduating batch.
