Over the last 8 years, Lawctopus has been synonymous with law students. With over 250,000 readers and over 1.5 million page-views a month, we are the largest platform (online or offline) for law students on this planet.
Our content consists of opportunities and events, internship experiences, interviews, career advisory pieces and more, with everything being done with the mission to enable informed and inspired careers for young people.
Campus Leaders are students (undergraduate or post-graduate) who are our eyes and ears in various law schools and universities.

You should be a law student (LL.B, LLM) in any law college (recognized, unrecognized, derecognized, asked for a bribe) in India.
You should be a proactive person willing to work hard and take initiative. This is a serious commitment (because we’ve been law students ourselves and know how busy you really are!) 🙂

Campus leaders become the go-to people in their colleges. Our tasks like interviewing star faculty members and students encourage you to go out of your comfort zone, talk and follow-up with people. These things build your communication and leadership skills.
While Lawctopus’ Campus Leaders program is immensely beneficial to many law students, we have made mistakes in the past. We do not claim to run a perfect program; we claim to run an excellent, useful one.
In some of the earlier batches (in 2016-17), we could not properly manage the task delivery and tracking due the large team we had.
Very recently, we faced a tech failure due to which we have had to relaunch this program.
We sincerely apologise for these.
But that’s the entrepreneurial spirit of breaking, making, and improving things as we go. We learn on each step and we know our campus leaders forgive our mistakes and bear with us as we improve our processes.
Some other details
Being a Campus Leader is a voluntary, unpaid position.
1-10 campus leaders can be selected per college (depending on the size of the college).
Campus Leaders will work under their Zonal Heads
You are required to work for around 2 hours/week. Usually, 1-2 tasks are allotted every month.
We give no task which cannot be completed along with your college, co-curricular activities, exams or even internships. Relax! We understand your world!
