About the Campus Leaders Program
We love serving young people and the Campus Leaders Program is a key element in our mission to enable informed and inspired careers. Campus Leaders are student volunteers (undergraduate or postgraduate) who are our eyes and ears in various law schools and universities.
We are inviting applications for our Campus Leaders Program 2021 from law students all across India.
Before we get into the details of it, you might be wondering why you should grab this opportunity.
Here’s Why You Should Become A Campus Leader
- Be it anything, a healthy dose of courage mixed with strong work ethics are the key ingredients to most success. The Campus Leaders program will help you develop the skill of being courageous (yes, it’s a skill), and inculcate professional work ethics.
- Get internships: We’ll help the 5 best performing campus leaders secure the internships they want.
- Earn money: You can earn money in three ways. First, get 10% of the advertisements that you bring. Second, earn a referral fee for LLS courses signed-up by your network. Third, ace your tasks, and win prize money.
- Get scholarships to our courses: Get free credits for online certificate courses by Lawctopus Law School (LLS) on successful completion of various tasks.
- Get mentorship: We’ll teach you how to craft your CV, draft cover letters, develop a career plan, apply for and ace internships, do well in moots and seminars. We’ll become your personal career coaches!
- Get a certificate on successful completion of your tenure.
- Develop your communication and other soft skills as you do the tasks.
- Develop your leadership skills.
- The Lawctopus Campus Leaders Program will not only help you build your soft skills from scratch but will ensure you carry them forward in your day to day routine even once you’ve ended your tenure with us.

- The TASKS, they were just amazing and more, interesting since they helped me to create a new bond with my friends and their friends from the same field and moreover, it was very overwhelming to receive all the help I needed from my friends regarding the tasks. It was great to help publicize about the internships, research papers and other such achievements of my friends and make their work count for some one else in this field.

But after the star task taking interviews and everything, I am like bring on the person and let me talk to him. :D. It really helped me to grow and you deserve my big thanks on this.
