Placements were occasioned through in house placement cells wherein students of the penultimate year used to do the ground work, overseen by the Principal and teacher in charge. Corprate legal firms like Anand and Anand, Surana etc. used to visit. Corporate companies like ICICI, Government PSUs, etc, also used to visit the campus. Ideally in the batch of 60, atleast 20 would get the placement. Packages at that time were in the tune of Rs. 5 Lakh per annum.
Internship was not provided at the relevant time though concessions were given to outstanding students and students who hailed from the lower strata. Process of giving internship was transparent and well founded.
Placement is 70% and all good companies come to our college and the minimum basic placement is 5 laks which goes till 15 laks.
I have did intern in 2 law firms and it was good i also got stipend of Rs 4000 which also helped me to work hard and do my best there and college also helps us to get such good firms to work with.
The placement cell works to bring in companies who might be interested in campus recruitment. However, the college does not guarantee 100 percent placements but I'll tell you why that's fine. Most people, in their 4th and 5th year of law school would have companies or firms of their own liking where they would like to join afterwards. Some opt for a litigation career and may have interned with litigation firms or advocates in the past. Another part of the student population prefer to go for higher studies. I have once heard a faculty tell us in my first year that the college doesn't thrive for the placements of the students but in making sure they are prepared enough for whatever career path...
The college placement cell does help with providing internships. Stipends are the sole decision of the firm/company providing the internships and is based on the performance of the intern during the course of internship. So giving a general stipend amount isn't possible. In the last semester, we got internship calls from Barclays, Bajaj Finance, JSA (J. Sagar Associates), JSW, BMR Constructions, Scorpio Shipping Claims, United Phosphorous Limited, IPRAA (Intellectual Property Rights Attorney Association, Chennai), MMB Legal, ELP(Economic Lawys Practice), Suni Thakker Associates (STA, Dubai) etc.
Companies like Wipro, L&T etc. are prominent recruiters who offer plush packages. this year Wipro offered placement to 6 5th year students who attained a package of Rs. 11 lakh/annum + bonus up to 2 lakh. Then, ICICI Bank is a regular recruiter and this year the highest package offered by them was Rs. 14 lakh + bonus upto 1.5 lakh. law firms like Amarchand Mangalda, AZB Partners, Khaitan and Co., Luthra and Luthra etc. are regular recruiters too.
The college has a dedicated placement cell which assists the students in procuring internships and job offers. The internships can be with lawyers, NGOs, law firms, or a judicial clerkship and it depends on the offerors if they give stipend or not. Generally, the stipend is given to the senior students (3rd-5th year) for sure and can range anything from Rs. 5000 - Rs. 20000, while the younger students may or may not get it, depending upon work.
More that 80% students are placed with well known companies and banks like ICICI bank, Luthra and Luthra etc. The highest package provided as far as I am aware about it 15L and the average package being 5L.
I worked tor Indian Promotion of Child Welfare and Adoption, Mumbai in my first year. No stipend was given to me. The internship experience was good. I chose to work with this particular NGO. However, internship provided by SLS is amazing. They send their students for internship to companies like Amarchand and Mangaldas etc.
The placement opportunities are huge as they can get, big firms like ICICI, Amarchand, Barclays, L&T etc hire with packages extending to 13 lakhs.
Barclays, amarchand, L&T and various other companies come regularly for offering jobs and internships to the students. Stipends range from about 5000 to 16000.
