As many as 49 students of Gujarat National Law University graduating next year have got placement in leading national and international law firms. Out of 82 students registered for the placement, 49 students are already placed ahead of their graduation in May 2020 with an annual package of Rs.15 lakh.
GNLU Director Dr. Bimal Patel said that the institute has achieved highest ever placement of its yet-to- graduate students. These include PPOs, Day Zero & Day One Offers, Training Contracts and Vacation Schemes by Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (13), Trilegal (15), Khaitan & Co. (06), Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas and Co. (05), AZB & Partners (01), J Sagar Associates (01), and Indus Law (05), Linklaters LLP (01 Training Contract), Herbert Smith Freehills LLP (01 – Vacation Scheme) and Allen & Gledhill LLP (01 – Vacation Scheme). The last three are international law firms.
“With the highest number of students getting placed in top tier Indian and international law firms with an average package of Rs. 15 lakh, the GNLU brand is firmly established. GNLU’s emphasis on holistic development- teaching, research, extension and training, sustained by the GNLU faculty and staff, is paying a rich dividend to students.
“The build-up to Day Zero is taxing for students and faculty alike. However, the 2015-20 batch has handled this time with grace and poise. The batch has always impressed me with its firm grasp over foundational knowledge, coupled with an ability to meet challenges. This enables them to remain oriented in this time of unparalleled change and innovation in the legal industry,” said Dr Nidhi Buch, Faculty Convenor of the Committee on Recruitment Affairs (CRA).
