NLU Jodhpur’s batch graduating last year, in 2020, has released its job placement figures for the 60 students who directly participated in the Recruitment and Internship Coordination Committee (RICC) activities.
Five of the highest-paying law firms proved to be the heaviest recruiters, with a total of 36 offers.
A total of 35 job offers were secured on Day Zero early recruitments with eight law firms, held on 2 April 2019, which we had reported on at the time.
The highest-paying tally was led by L&L Partners and Trilegal each picking up eight NLU Jodhpur 2020 grads.
Around half of each of these hires had taken place via pre-placement offers (PPOs) – see the full table below.
Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas made a total of seven accepted job offers while Khaitan & Co hired six.
Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and AZB & Partners hired six and four students each.
15 other job offers were accepted at domestic firms.
Three graduates accepted jobs in London at Herbert Smith Freehills and Linklaters (we have double checked with the RICC whether those positions are all training contracts or also include internship-style vacation schemes and will update this article as soon as they confirm; back in 2019, they had been vacation schemes).
In-house corporate jobs were fewer in numbers, with only two each opting for ICICI Bank, Tata Power and the Universal Sompo General Insurance Co (plus one job at the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India).
Further education, including LLMs, as well as litigation jobs were not procured via the RICC and therefore not tallied.
“The class of 2020 comprises of 101 students, out of which 60 students had subscribed for recruitment through the RICC and a few other students had obtained recruitment through their own efforts,” said the RICC in a statement.
“The remaining students from the batch of 2020 decided to pursue litigation, civil examinations and higher studies,” the committee said.
The RICC also added:
The success of the recruitment process has to be attributed to the University’s Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. Poonam Saxena and Dr. Manoj Kumar Singh, Director of the Recruitment and Internship Co-ordination Committee. Additionally, we also thank the participating firms and organizations for the continued support extended to us. We wish the Batch of 2020 all the best for their future endeavors.
NUJS had recently also revealed its 2019-20 recruitments, which included at least 64 jobs in the highest law firm pay-bracket.
Nuals Kochi has also shared its 2020 recruitments to date, with 32 accounted-for career options for an RCC of 65.
