NLU Jodhpur students put on strong opening to 2020 recruitment season

NLU Jodhpur’s 2 April Day Zero of recruitment for the 2020 graduating batch in combination with strong pre-placement offers (PPOs) has yielded a total of 42 confirmed job offers or vacation placements, as well as three sought-after vacation schemes with international firms.

The batch of 101 students, of whom 60 subscribed for recruitment through the Recruitment and Internship Coordination Committee (RICC), saw eight law firms make a total of 29 offers on Day Zero, of which 16 were accepted by students.

PPOs brought in a total of 23 accepted jobs, according to figures provided by the RICC (see full table below).

This year’s Day Zero managed to improve on last year’s, where Jodhpurians as at the same time had secured 32 jobs to begin in 2019.

International law firm Linklaters offered 2 vacation schemes in London, which traditionally have a good chance of becoming high-paying training contracts that (after a sponsored conversion course for up to a year) pay £47,000 (around Rs 42 lakh per year), increasing to £52,500 after one year and £83,000 (Rs 75 lakh) after two years.

Herbert Smith Freehills offered one more vacation scheme in London, which pays similarly.

The top domestic recruiter was Trilegal, which saw 8 students elect to join the firm, of whom 5 had secured PPOs previously.

Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, picked up 7 (including 4 PPOs), while L&L Partners hired 6 (including 4 PPOs).

Khaitan & Co hired a total of 5, Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas hired 4.

Desai & Diwanji and Majmudar & Partners each hired one student via Day Zero recruitments.

Via PPOs, ICICI Bank hired 2, while Robert Half Legal and MZM Legal each picked up one student.

The RICC commented: “The successful start of the recruitment process has to be attributed to the University’s Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. Poonam Saxena and Dr. Manoj Kumar Singh, Director of the Recruitment and Internship Co-ordination Committee. Additionally, we also thank the firms that participated in our Day Zero for their continued co-operation and support. We look forward to continuing to host some of the best recruiters for the Class of 2020 and our subsequent classes.”
