NLIU Bhopal improves recruitments with 38 out of 81 grads despite late Day Zero

Bhopal Day 0: Better, late, whenever?
Bhopal Day 0: Better, late, whenever?

NLIU Bhopal has placed 38 out of 81 students who graduated this year, with 10 Big Six firm jobs - Amarchand Mangaldas and Khaitan & Co - and nine other law firm jobs while seven graduates joined named litigation chambers.

Eight graduates went on to pursue LLMs from national law universities and foreign schools, with three joining the alma mater’s LLM program.

This batch had started its Day Zero months after other top law schools had begun, with a visit by Amarchand and Clifford Chance’s offshoring outfit OSC.

In 2011 and 2012, NLIU graduates scored around 33 and 31 jobs respectively. The college, and others, did not disclose their figures in 2013.

Legally India has reported that CNLU Patna placed 17 out of 63 graduates in 2014, AIL Mohali placed 35 out of 80 graduates and RGNUL placed six out of 70 graduates.

Big Six law firm jobs made up 16 out of 45 jobs bagged by NLU Delhi 2014 graduates, 25 out of 42 jobs bagged by NLSIU 2014 graduates, 25 out of 72 jobs bagged by NUJS 2014 graduates, and 26 out of 71 jobs bagged by Nalsar 2014 graduates.

None of the Big Six visited HNLU’s campus where 29 out of 81 graduates secured jobs, while RMLNLU set a new institutional record with 45 jobs for its 150 graduates this year, and NUALS placed one-third of its 2014 graduates.

Editor’s note: We are reaching out to other 2014 recruitment committees who have now graduated. We remain hopeful that GNLU Gandhinagar and Christ Bangalore will disclose soon. Please get in touch with us at to arrange sharing the final figures.
