NUJS Day Zero: 41 jobs for 2012 grads from foreign, domestic recruiters

Exclusive: At least 41 final year NUJS Kolkata students in a 2012 graduating batch of around 95 have secured office-based jobs, including three training contracts abroad and numerous offers from Amarchand, Trilegal, Luthra and AZB and Bharucha.

Law firms and recruiters first began visiting NUJS campus in late June as part of the Campus Recruitment Committee (CRC) while others had made pre-placement offers (PPOs) to students.

Three students were offered training contracts with foreign law firms Linklaters and CMS Cameron McKenna and one other training contract offer was still expected, said members of the CRC.

As in the 2011 graduating batch at NUJS, this year too saw Amarchand Mangaldas leading the recruiter tally hiring 10 law graduates from the college.

Other law firms like Trilegal (7), Luthra & Luthra (6) AZB & Partners (3) and J Sagar Associates (JSA) (2) also hired multiple students from NUJS (see table).

In-house legal giant ICICI Bank hired three students while non-governmental research organisation PRS Legislative Research also recruited one student.

CRC student coordinator Kumar Ashutosh commented: “Though we were approached by law firms to conduct day zero recruitments earlier we made a conscious decision to delay the recruitment process until June-end so as to not affect students' internships.”

“We are pleased with the recruitments made so far as recruiters have hired students having a diverse academic record and [recruiters] have not necessarily hired students on the basis of their grades.”

CRC coordinator Ankit Thakur added that the CRC had “evolved a comprehensive strategy” and was on track to place the maximum number of students this year.

In April of this year 29 students each at NLSIU Bangalore and Nalsar Hyderabad secured job offers to start in 2012.
