JGLS achieves record placements in 2022 with 48 offers in leading law firms

The graduating students of the 2022 batch of Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), ranked as India’s Number One law school in QS World University Rankings by Subject in 2021, have 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.

 

Despite the uncertainty posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s tally of 48 students surpassed 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 7 accepted offers each. Indus Law extended 4 offers, while AZB & Partners (Delhi) and Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co. hired 2 students each. Argus Partners recruited 1 student. HCL, one of India’s most prestigious IT services and consulting organisations, recruited 5 students for its general counsel practice.

 

Also, while Veritas Legal extended 2 PPOs, Khaitan & Co., J. Sagar Associates and Sarvada Legal also extended PPOs to 1 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, JGU, said, “JGLS has moved from strength to strength despite the trying times. With the second wave in full force, the Office of 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 the part of the students, faculty and the Office of Career Services. JGLS students demonstrated exceptional resilience by committing to multiple learning and professional experiences.”
