NLU Delhi scores 100% final 2019 placements: Exclusively 20 high-paying Big Laws, 4 foreigns, 17 in-house

Final year students of NLU Delhi, graduating in 2019, have secured 41 jobs with top corporate law firms, which picked up a total of 20, while foreign firms hired four into training contracts.

A total of 41 students eventually participated in recruitment activities, having expanded the numbers since the 38 who had participated in Day Zero a year ago, when NLU Delhi had placed 19 already.

The largest recruiter was Trilegal, which hired 5, followed by Khaitan & Co, which picked up 4.

S&R Associates hired three, while two each will join AZB & Partners, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas and L&L Partners.

Other high-payers P&A Law Offices and Talwar Thakore & Associates made one accepted offer.

And as the cherry on top, a grand total of four training contracts paying a lot of UK pounds were won, split evenly across foreign firms Herbert Smith Freehills and Linklaters. That would suggest that all four vacation schemes from Day Zero last year were converted into training contracts.

13 joined private-sector corporates in-house, with 4 joining the PSU, Steel Authority of India.

The total batch size is 78 students, of whom the rest will do non-corporate jobs, as well as pursue LLMs at universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. Students have also secured fellowships such as the LAMP Fellowship administered by PRS and the Arthur C Helton Fellowship granted by the American Society of International Law, according to the Recruitment Coordination Committee (RCC).

The RCC Members were Shivpriya Gurtoo, Kritika Vidyarthi, Rahul Srivastava, Deepali Verma, Prashanth KP and Rohan Bhatia.
