- Total job offers made: 42
- Total accepted job offers: Unknown
Editor’s comment: It’s surprising that out of 102 students only 47 sat for placements! It’s usual and expected from colleges to give various excuses for this: that the students are opting for LLMs, judiciary exams and litigation.
If real, this would be a great sign! However, this is usually done to inflate placement numbers. This is true for most colleges in India, including colleges outside the law domain.
Here are the organisations from where students have secured job offers.
Note: Job offers are different from ‘accepted’ job offers.
|Organisation||No. of offers|
|Mindcrest Inc, Pune (LPO)||17|
|Quislex, Hyderabad (LPO)||7|
|LexQual Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Coimbatore (LPO)||7|
|King & Partridge, Bangalore||3 (+2 waitlisted)|
|Masilamani Law Partners, Noida||2 (+1 subject to assessment|
|Biswajit Sarkar – Advocates I.P. Attorneys, Kolkata||2|
|Thomson Reuters Legal Managed Services (LPO)||2 (subject to assessment internship)|
|Jus Sahaya Associates, Chennai||1|
Editor’s comment: Out of 42 job offers, 33 are from LPOs. This is not a good sign.
Starting off your career at an LPO makes it difficult to shift to roles in companies or law firms later on in your career. At the same time, a proactive individual can find managerial roles in LPOs pretty quickly.
Mindcrest Pune and Quislex Hyderabad’s salary package ranges from Rs. 25,000-30,000/month.
None of the offers are from top law firms or companies. While we understand that it’s not the sole yardstick for measuring the quality of a law school, NLU Ranchi saw 2 students placed at Khaitan, 1 at Luthra, 2 at Wipro and 3 and L & T Finance.
