  2. Eagerly waiting for the results which were due for today, if you guys haven’t decided to postpone once again, that is!

  3. Fictiojuris says:

    I did a longish internship, a part of which was Apr-July. I submitted the write-up last night, Does it count as an entry?

  4. stuti rathi says:

  5. I have not mailed you my internship experience but I submitted it as a post here on your blog. Will that do?

  6. Hello. When are the results out?

  7. Prabuddha Mookerjee says:

    Its funny how you ask for comments, put up tentative dates and then ignore them all. Have you guys even put up the entries?
    Must say, bunch of lazy guys! You make so much money, hire people to run the show dude!

  8. i had written about my experience at K&S Partners, Gurgaon. but it didn’t get published.

  9. Isn’t today the 15th of September?

  10. My internship experience has not been published yet.

  11. I have sent my entry in an email to Tanuj Kalia. Are we to expect some sort of confirmation?
    Also, please tell us the timeline as to when we could expect the results.

  12. nls student says:

    i think its problematic that you are restricting this to a time period of april-july this year. for eg, National Law School, Bangalore has only a 3 week vacation in this time period, and most people do not intern then. Our main vacation period is around 7 weeks from Jan end to March beginning, and your time limit does not allow us to submit our entries for this competition.
    I understand that most colleges do have a long summer break, but if you actually want to make this inclusive for everyone, I think you should change the time period (maybe something like the last 1 year?).

  13. sourabh says:

  20. Lawctopus Essay Writing Contest Winner 2011 says:

    If you have money why don’t you first reward the Lawctopus essay writing contest 2011 winners? We still have not received the certificates and the prize money as promised.

    • administrator says:

      The certificates and prize money were a responsibility of the LYF (Liberal Youth Forum). As you know we’ve contacted them on your behalf repeatedly. Please contact them on this.
