Ramlu recruits: Catching on

RMLNLU Lucknow reached a record high in its annual placement graph with 45 out of its 150 graduates this year finding jobs with law firms, companies, banks, think tanks and legal process outsourcing companies (LPO).

15 students secured jobs through campus placements: the largest number (7) got jobs from legal process outsourcer (LPO) Pangea3, and others with HDFC bank (2), LPO OSC Gurgaon (1), publisher Eastern Book Company (3) and companies Torrent Power (1) and Torrent Pharma (1).

The remaining 30 were given pre-placement offers (PPO) or independently secured job offers.

“The Recruitment Process for the current batch started in April, 2013. Out of the batch strength of 150 students, 80 students registered for the process. As of June 2014, almost 70 students have received at least one offer from various organizations,” according to an email from RMLNLU’s Internship and Placement Committee for 2014.

Last year, RMLNLU Lucknow’s graduating class of 140 received 50 job offers - 20 from LPOs and nine independently. In 2012 25 out of 154 secured jobs, while the very first batch of 71 bagged 13 jobs.
