UPDATE [24th February, 11.10 PM].
Thank you everyone who wrote to us! We love you!
A small announcement, first up: After publishing the first few entries, we decided only to publish the extremely well-written entries, the ones which jumped out of the page (because of the number of entries we got, we had to make this call).
In case you think you wrote a gem of a piece and we haven’t published it please reply back to the email you sent. We’ll be happy reconsider your entry and arrange for equivalent prizes.
Now, let no one tell you that your love or writing do not deserve a prize. But well, we have to make a decision, and here it is:
1st Prize: The moot court memo defending the nice, friend-zoned guys. Pure wow-ness by Nitin Gaurav Srivastava! See here.
2nd Prize: What a ‘hindi’ literary talent this girl Shraddha Upadhyay is! See here.
3rd Prize: The anonymous entry that ‘came out’. 🙂 See here.
We’ll be contacting the winners soon. Congratulations, guys!
And finally, a big thank you to our sponsors for this competition: Law Pundits and Law Suits & More.
Lawctopus is organizing a blogging competition for law students who are in love, had been in love, or are planning to be in love or have been anywhere around that.
Have you had a crush on someone? Write about it!
Dates? Good for you. Write.
In love? Wow. Write.
Unrequited love? Aww. Write, still.
Or throw in a mix of law and love?
Things didn’t go as planned? Writing is catharsis!
Planning to get married soon? Tell us about your story.
Have tips on dating, love, relationships, attraction etc.? Send them to us!
Female, male, transgender, trans-sexual, lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual; write about gender and law and sex and law. Even short academic essays are welcome.
Give the writer, lawyer, feminist, masculinist and the lover in you a go.
Share lover letters, date experiences, write-ups, stories, photos, art, poems; anything! These should be original, of course!
Anything about love you’ve experienced or imagined in law school, write about it!
