Over 50% Have Job Offers in Place

Campuses are abuzz with placement activity, especially so at the National Law School of India University (NLSIU). While management
students had to sail through some rough storms this season, the conditions are still favourable for their law counterparts.

According to the recruitment coordination committee, NLSIU, of the 63 final-year students, only 25 are sitting for the final placement. "The placement season was on April 3, 4 and 5. About five firms came on the main placement day. For the firms that couldn't come on these days, we've decided to keep the season open for two weeks," said Rohini Kharkar, recruitment coordination committee.

Of the 25, only eight are yet to be placed. "We're awaiting the arrival of 3-4 firms," added Rohini. The premier law school is confident all students will be placed before the season is out.

Students have not done so badly for themselves vis-a-vis international offers. Kushal Bhimjiani, public relations cell, NLSIU, said owing to the goodwill its alumni have garnered over the years, one-fourth of the student population has managed to snag international offers. "About eight international firms came for placements so far. The number of students getting offers is twice the number than any law school," said Kushal.

Notably, 20 students were already placed in international firms in their fourth year itself.

These numbers indicate that over half the batch has job offers. While it is believed that most join prestigious law schools so they can eventually join giant law firms, this year, a few students have decided to go down the untrodden path -- litigation.

Most have shied away from this, as it takes years to build up one's reputation and even longer before one can actually start making money. "This year, 10 students have opted for litigation, which is something frankly quite unheard of," said Kushal.

Ivy League too has come knocking this year, accepting five people to pursue higher studies. While Sushila Rao is a Rhodes Scholar, a few are opting for civil services and policy and research.

Rohini added: "Two new foreign firms, Ashurst and Norton Rose, visited our campus and for the first time are recruiting from an Indian campus."
