NLS after Day Zero: 46 early jobs in bag out of 76 grads for 2019 • Trilegal biggest, 1 foreign vac scheme (though likely no foreign job)

Day Zero at NLSIU yields jobs for 60 percent of batch already, more than 1 year before graduating
Day Zero at NLSIU yields jobs for 60 percent of batch already, more than 1 year before graduating

NLSIU Bangalore has already placed 46 out of 76 students who will graduate the LLB degree next year.

15 of those jobs were sealed during the 3 April ‘Day Zero’ of recruitment at the law school, and 10 more jobs were accepted on and after the 10 April ‘Day One’ of recruitment.

Trilegal has so far been the biggest recruiter for the batch graduating in 2019, with 7 candidates hired already, including 4 PPOs and 3 Day Zero jobs.

Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Khaitan & Co and Luthra & Luthra with 6 jobs each, were the other leading recruiters among the nine firms and two banks, which have already hired from the law school.

Out of these CAM hired four students on Day Zero - becoming the biggest recruiter on Day Zero. SAM on the other hand, which was facing the problem of internal approvals for their offers to NLU Delhi on 24 March and NLU Jodhpur on 2 April, and therefore couldn’t hire this season from those NLUs, gave out offers at NLSIU which were accepted on the spot.

The others were Talwar Thakore & Associates, AZB & Partners, S&R Associates, ICICI, Finsec Law Advisors and Societe Generale.

Out of these ICICI hired 4 students.

Recruiter Total PPO Day Zero Day One
Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas 6 4 1 1
Trilegal 7 4 3
Khaitan & Co 6 3 3
Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas 6 2 4
Luthra & Luthra 6 6
Talwar Thakore & Associates 2 1 1
AZB & Partners 3 3
S&R Associates 1 1
ICICI Bank 4 4
Finsec Law Advisors 3 3
Societe Generale 2 2
46 21 15 10

International firms Herbert Smith Freehills, Linklaters and Allen & Overy which have hired from NLU Delhi and NLU Jodhpur this season were missing from the mix at NLSIU.

We understand that A&O gave out one vacation scheme but that student later also appeared for Day Zero and won a job offer with a domestic firm. The RCC told us that the student has not yet made a decision of accepting the domestic job offer instead of the vacation scheme he had already bagged.

A total of 15 offers were made on Day Zero, while 10 more offers were made on Day One.

50 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 33 jobs gained during last year’s Day Zero excluding three vacation schemes.
