What is Lawctopus

Hello! Namaste! Aadaab! Satsriaakaal! Vandanamulu!

Welcome to Lawctopus, India’s most popular and trusted website for law students.

Launched on 26th September, 2010, Lawctopus now gets 85,000+ unique readers and 4 lakh+ page-views every month.

We’ve been covered by leading dailies like The Telegraph and the Economic Times, among others. On June 30, we entered into a multi-faceted tie-up with LexisNexis.

Here are the things you’ll find on Lawctopus:

Opportunities: Call for papers, essay competitions, seminars, courses, law school fests, moot court competitions, fellowships, PDs, MUNs and every opportunity which you can avail.

In case you want to share an opportunity, please share it here.

Internship ExperiencesInternship experiences of law students at various places: lawyers, NGOs, law firms, companies etc.  Such a database of internship experiences, we believe, will help you make informed decisions about your internships and careers.

Personal BlogsLaw schools can sometimes stifle creativity and we won’t let that happen! We regularly publish write-ups and other art by law students like yourself.

Career Advice: Lawctopus contains a healthy repository of articles guiding law students about their careers. Advice related to  internships, mooting,  career options in law, curating a CV etc. are shared in this section.

You can also find career resources: sample cover letterCV, moot court memo and internship contact details for free download.

Law School News: Lawctopus doesn’t merely cover law school events; we are NOT interested in that.

Events Calendar: We curate the opportunities we post in a neat calendar!

Do let us know if you have any comment or suggestion to make. Always happy to hear from law students. Always happy to help law students!
