Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), India’s leading law school, has secured a record 48 accepted offers from some of India’s most prestigious law firms on Day Zero and Day One of the placement process for graduating students of the batch of 2022. Despite the turbulence of the global pandemic, this year’s tally of 48 surged well past last year’s record of 36 accepted offers. This includes 6 pre-placement offers (PPOs) and 7 Day-One offers.
The largest recruiter across the board was Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas with 15 accepted offers including 1 PPO, followed by AZB & Partners (Mumbai) and Trilegal with seven accepted offers each. Indus Law extended four offers, while AZB & Partners (Delhi) and Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co. hired two students each. Argus Partners recruited one student. HCL, one of India’s most prestigious IT services and consulting organizations, recruited five students for its general counsel practice.
While Veritas Legal extended two pre-placement offers, Khaitan & Co., J. Sagar Associates and Sarvada Legal also extended pre-placement offers to one student each. The Zero Day Placement for the Graduating Batch of 2022 was held on August 4-5, 2021, followed by Day One Placements.
Commenting on the achievements of the students of JGLS, Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor, O.P. Jindal Global University and the Founding Dean, Jindal Global Law School said, “Jindal Global Law School has moved from strength to strength despite the trying times. With the second wave in full force, the Office of the Career Services and our students had to not only work within the overly competitive environment, but also work against an adverse economic landscape. The Zero Day results are the outcome of many years of sustained efforts on part of the students, faculty and the office of career services. JGLS students demonstrated exceptional resilience by committing to multiple learning and professional experiences. The Office of Career Services at JGU proactively organized several interactive sessions with senior professionals to acquaint the students with the culture and hiring process at these top-notch firms. I am extremely grateful to the recruiting partners for placing their resolute trust in Jindal Global Law School.”Campus, News
