NUJS 2020 batch sees up to 65 students already placed after Day Zero, with Trilegal making 21 offers

NUJS Day Zero: Secret, but successful
NUJS Day Zero: Secret, but successful

NUJS Kolkata’s 2020 graduating batch has seen a stonking so-called Day Zero of recruitments so far, which has seen between 33 to 35 students secure pre-placement offers (PPOs) and at least around 30 students accepted around 40 offers to start in 2020, after recruiters’ campus interviews.

While, in now time-honoured tradition, the NUJS recruitment committee declined to comment or confirm figures, citing policy, we understand from sources that the above numbers are an accurate reflection.

The NUJS 2020 graduating batch has a strength of around 120. The PPOs have skyrocketed since last year’s Day Zero, when there were at least 20 PPOs in the bag by this time, though last year around 84 job offers had been made, resulting in a total of around 60 acceptances.

These figures do not include any training contracts or vacation schemes.

NUJS students saw a huge number of offers made this year by domestic law firms, led by Trilegal, which made a grand total of 21 offers (though we are not sure how many of those were accepted).

Approximate breakdown of the 40-odd Day Zero offers made, below:

  • Trilegal: 21 offers
  • Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas: 8 offers
  • Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas: 2 offers
  • AZB & Partners: 7 offers
  • L&L Partners: 2 offers

Accepted offers, including via PPOs include:

  • Khaitan & Co: 4 accepted offers
  • TT&A: 1
  • Indus: 4
  • Argus: 1
  • Desai & Diwanji: 2

ICICI Bank is expected to interview on campus on 15 April.

We ran the above figures past the campus recruitment committee, which declined to comment.

Thanks to all NUJS students who (secretly) assisted us with collating these numbers.
