NUJS: tries hard
NUJS: tries hard

NUJS Kolkata just about matched Nalsar Hyderabad’s Big Six hire score of 26, with 25 of the law school’s graduates this year bagging Big Six law firm gigs on the back of 10 pre placement offers (PPO).

NUJS placed 72 of its 115 graduates with law firms, corporate, legal process outsourcing (LPO) and other organisations after 79 participated in campus recruitment this year.

The 2014 batch bagged 21 of the 25 jobs with Amarchand Mangaldas, AZB & Partners, J Sagar Associates (JSA), Luthra & Luthra, Khaitan & Co and Trilegal – dubbed India’s Big Six – in its Day Zero in 2013.

70 graduates of the law school’s 2013 batch were accounted for including eight judicial clerkships and 15 LLM admissions. Two students secured judicial clerkships this year, and “9-10” are “pursuing higher studies”, according to the 2014 RCC.

Editor’s note: We are reaching out to other 2014 recruitment committees who have now graduated. Please get in touch with us at to arrange sharing the final figures.
