NLU Placement 2020
NLU Placement 2020 - One of the primary concerns students have when picking a law college is its placement record. Even with the National Law Universities, though they are considered among the best law schools in the land, aspirants want details about NLU placements report. It is because they want to have some kind of assurance before they make a decision, like what kind of jobs they will get, recruiters, and payscale. Many of these students are from diverse economic backgrounds, and the first and foremost thing on their mind is to start earning from the get go so they can support their families or stand on their own two feet. In this article we bring you the top NLU placement reports explain the placement process, and how you should prepare for placement.
What is the NLU placement process?
The NLUs will typically have a placement and recruitment cell that will help the student in the placement process. The most important criteria the candidate needs to fulfill is they need to have good scores in their semester exams to brighten their chances of recruitment.
Two types of placements are there:
Zero day placement: The zero placement takes place in the 4th year of the LLB program and is the most important one. It is because all the big corporations and other recruiters come for zero placement. Considering the students haven't yet completed their college, it is also called pre-placement offer (PPO).
Placement in final year: Students who didn’t get placed in zero day placement or didn’t participate in it for whatever reasons may participate in the placement process which is conducted in the final year.
Internship matter more than placement interview itself
When we spoke to Yash Tripathi, a second year student at GNLU, Gandhinagar, he told us that most corporations recruit law graduates who have already interned for them. This means if during the internship, the student manages to prove his or her skills and shows that they can adjust to the corporate scheme of things, then they more or less are a surety during the placement process. They will also have to participate in the placement interview, but in these cases it is just a formality.
Getting ready for internships and placements
Active participation in moot courts, along with doing regular study, is recommended to make oneself ready for internships and finally NLU placements.
There are two types of moot courts:
Intra-college moot courts: At the intra-college level, the moot courts are conducted by participants from within the college. Also, judges tend to be alumni or some eligible person from that college.
Inter-college moot courts: In inter-college moot courts, students get to rub shoulders with students from other colleges. So it is more competitive, more intellectually stimulating, and demands greater skill sets.

Hope you find it helpful.
is it good to go out another city for clat preparation, because the place where I live has no facility but after I clear this exam , again I have to somewhere else for law. what to do? which city is best for clat preparation.
Well preparing for clat is also possible without coaching but it do require extra work as you will have to collect all the required materials such as notes and books by yourself, where in a coaching centre you are provided all the required materials.
However it isn't necessary to go to a different city to prepare untill and unless you are not ready. You have made a very good point here that for law college you will eventually have to go to a different city. Well if you are ready and comfortable than go for it. I will recommend you to go for delhi, as it has some of the best coaching centres and crowd is also good.
However if you are not ready to go to a different city you can also try online coaching programs. In offline coaching centres you get to interact with competitive crowd which pushes you up further to work hard however in online classes it isn't possible.
Anyways I hope you will make best decision for yourself. Hope you find it helpful.

If you wish to give CLAT then you can take BA/LLB or BBA/LLB then after graduation you can appear for upsc . UPSC basic criteria includes graduation degree in any discipline from any recognized University. Candidate must be more than 21 years of age and the upper age limit is 32 years for general candidates. Therefore as per your interest you can do graduation in law and then give upsc after completing your graduation.
