NLU Jodhpur has already placed 32 out of 103 students who will graduate the LLB degree next year, including three foreign firm vacation schemes.

12 of those jobs were sealed during the 2 April ‘Day Zero’ of recruitment at the law school, and 2 more jobs were accepted after Day Zero.

Luthra & Luthra with 6 pre-placement offers (PPOs) and 2 day zero offers, was the leading recruiter among the seven firms and one company, which have already hired from the law school.

The others were Trilegal, Khaitan & Co, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, Jyoti Sagar Associates (JSA), Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan, Majmudar & Partners and Wipro Technologies.

Out of these, Trilegal hired 6 (with an even split between PPO and Day Zero), while Khaitan & Co picked up 5 NLU Jodhpur candidates via PPO.

Khaitan & Co 5 5
Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas 4 1 3
Majmudar & Partners 2 1 1

Wipro 2 2
Herbert Smith Freehills 1 1
Linklaters 1 1
Allen & Overy 1 1
Total 32 18 9 2 3

International firms Herbert Smith Freehills, Linklaters and Allen & Overy each offered one vacation scheme, of which Linklaters has already converted its offered scheme to a training contract.

A total of 13 offers were made on Day Zero, while 2 more offers were made and accepted after Day Zero by Wipro Technologies.

25 students from the batch graduating in 2019 appeared for the Day Zero.

Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) was missing from the mix. SAM could not roll out final offers despite participating in Day Zero because it did not have internal approvals to do so, RCC members told us about having been informed about this by SAM’s HR team, just like in the case of NLU Delhi more than a week ago.

NLU J scored 6 more jobs this year than in last year’s Day Zero.

NLU Jodhpur also outperformed NLU Delhi this time in terms of total Day Zero jobs despite holding its Day Zero more than one week after Delhi.
