I was going through the placements offered by NLSIU and I dont understand one thing that how come placement packages for B.A LL.B students is more than LL.M students. B.A LL.B- 12lakhs and for LL.M- 7lakhs ? Why so?
National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore is India's first law university and is one of the premier institutes in the country for law studies. Placements as you know, are quite good in the college. Regarding your query about why B.A LLB students are placed with better packages than LLM students, it can be due to a wide variety of reasons. Placements usually don't depend on your marks or the course you are pursuing. Though there may be some internal CGPA cutoff, chances of placement mainly depends on your skills, your knowledge, communication and attitude. It may be that the undergraduate students were more skilled and enthusiastic than the LLM students, that's why they are preferred and paid more. Also, the companies which hire at looking for corporate lawyers, so they will prefer the undergrads. Working in corporates can be highly pressurizing and they may have more workload.
The LLM graduates may not be interested to work in corporate firms. They may be much more skilled and knowledgable than the undergraduates, and hence they would opt to prepare for other competitive exams to get into the judiciary. They may even prefer to work as a litigation lawyer for a private firm or may even set up their own law firm. So there are many reasons for this disparity in placement packages. Ultimately, it will depend on you as an individual, your skills and how you present yourself during the campus placement.
Hope it helps. All the best!
