The Committee for Campus Recruitment (CCR) of Nuals Kochi's first graduating batch after it was recognised as a national law university has found desk jobs for almost half its students.

Vishnu Sivanandan, member of the outgoing 2011-batch CCR, confirmed that 28 students have been given offer letters by various law-firm, corporate houses and advocates.

Sivanandan added that 47 students had participated in the recruitment process out of a total batch of 58 students.

Around 41 per cent of the batch were placed with law-firms and corporate houses either through pre-placement offers (PPOs), according to Sivanandan. The top law firm recruiters were Lakshmi Kumaran and Sridharan with four offers and Desai & Diwanji with three. ICICI Bank and Vedanta both recruited three.

Four students would be working with senior advocates of the Kerala high court, after having been offered PPOs by senior advocates. A few others would also be working in the chambers of senior advocates and pursue litigation as a career.

Sivandan noted that a large number of students will pursue LLMs from law schools in India and abroad.

Five students will be studying master’s degrees from the National University of Singapore (NUS), while one student each will be doing LLMs from Duisenberg School of Finance in Amsterdam and Queen Mary University of London.

A number of other students who had appeared for the post-graduate CLAT exam would do LLMs at top national law universities (NLU's) in India, he said.
