On April 18 this year, campus recruitments at the National University of Juridical Sciences in Kolkata came to an end. By the end of that weekend, a total of six universities had completed their “day zero” recruitment drive; in all, one hundred and sixty-nine future lawyers had landed jobs across eight law firms.
And not a single one of these one hundred and sixty-nine will actually start work this year; they will all graduate in 2016.
By the looks of it, Indian law firms are betting big on the future, and more than willing to put their money where their mouth is. Our research indicates that salary expenditures on fresh graduates alone will cross Rs. 200 million for the year 2016-17.
