PPOs save placement-record as Christ Law’s 2nd graduating batch hosts fewer law firms

The number of recruiting law firms visiting Christ College of Law Bangalore slumped to two this year, but the second batch graduating from the college made it up in terms of pre placement offers (PPOs) to secure 21 total jobs, one short of the college’s debut recruitment record.

Out of the 14 organisations hiring from a pool of 49 students registered with the recruitment coordination committee of 2012, J Sagar Associates (JSA) and Nishith Desai Associates (NDA) were the only law firms interviewing on campus. JSA hired one and NDA hired two students.

[Correction: The information supplied by the RCC previously, was partially incorrect. It has now clarified that JSA and NDA did not visit campus, but conducted off-campus interviews]

PXV Law Partners, BMR Advisors and Link Legal Advocates, each extending one PPO, and Murli Associates with two PPOs, were the only other law firms figuring in the RCC’s recruitment table this year.

Legal process outsourcing unit (LPO) Pangea3 was the biggest recruiter at the law school, hiring three students through campus and one through PPO. Clutch Group was the other LPO that visited campus and engaged two students.

Insurance companies also paid a visit: Prudent Insurance Brokers hired two students while Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Corporation made one hire.

Three non government organisations (NGOs) and a think tank each recruited the remaining four students. International human rights NGO Justice and Care, and domestic free school-teaching movement Teach for India picked one student each on campus, and wildlife-law enforcement NGO Freeland Wildlife Trust hired one student through PPO.

Bangalore-based think tank Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) engaged a student.

Four more RCC participants in the batch of 77, will pursue an LLM. The University of Singapore accepted two students, while Cornell University and George Washington University accepted one each.

Three students are known to have opted for court practice while one gears up to take the civil services examination.

Previously, at Christ

The first ever class graduating from the Bangalore law school last year, smaller in size by two students, saw 22 jobs for a pool of 52 students registered with the inaugural recruitment coordination committee.

Trilegal and Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan (LKS) were the biggest of the five law firms visiting campus last year, while GMR, Infosys and Roamware were the three local companies interviewing students on campus.

An LPO was the keenest recruiter at Christ last time as well, though CPA Global took the place of Pangea 3 which did not figure in last year’s recruitment table.

HNLU Raipur was the other law school where LPO Pangea3 was the heaviest recruiter this year, being the only one to visit the Abhanpur campus. The LPO hired three student’s from HNLU’s class of 2012.
