NLU Delhi after Day Zero: 19 jobs in bag already out of 78 grads for 2019 • Trilegal, Khaitan, S&R biggest recruiters

NLU Delhi has already placed 23 out of 78 students who will graduate LLB next year, including four foreign firm vacation schemes, with 10 of those jobs gained during the 24 March ‘Day Zero’ of recruitment at the law school.

Trilegal with two pre-placement offers (PPOs) and three day zero offers, was the leading recruiter among the seven firms which have already hired from the law school.

The others were Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, AZB & Partners, Khaitan & Co, Luthra & Luthra, Talwar Thakore & Associates (TTA) and S&R Associates.

Out of these, Khaitan hired 4 (with an even split between PPO and Day Zero), while the very high-paying and competitive S&R Associates picked up a whopping three NLU Delhi candidates via PPO.

CAM Trilegal AZB Khaitan Luthra TTA S&R Total
PPOs 1 2 0 2 1 0 3 9
Day Zero 1 3 2 2 1 1 0 10
Total 2 5 2 4 2 1 3 19

Herbert Smith and Linklaters each offered two vacation schemes. 15 total offers were made on Day Zero.

38 students from the batch graduating in 2019 are enrolled in recruitment activities out of which 28 appeared for the Day Zero. Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and J Sagar Associates (JSA) were missing from the mix which has 4 fewer jobs than last year’s Day Zero, but the 9 PPOs almost made up for the lag.

SAM, which did visit campus on Day Zero and intended to make offers could not get those offers internally approved within the firm, within the day. Due to NLU Delhi’s RCC policy of declaring total offers together at the end of the day, so that students with more than one offers can select one, SAM’s offers could not be added to the total count, the RCC told us.

The RCC consists of Aayush Kashyap, Kritika Vidyarthi, Mahima Jain,​ ​Rohan Naik, Siddhant Sachdeva, Tanuj Dayal and​​ Tishta​ ​Tandon.​
