Since starting in 2010, Lawctopus has managed to create a new vocabulary for the law student in India: internship experience.
Some law firms and lawyers and organizations fear this phrase; it exposes them like no other. The good ones love it for the same reason: it’s an exposure for them like no other!
Law students love internship experiences. Many of them trust it; not wholly, or in complete measure, but very substantially!
In 2010, information about internships was hidden, unorganised, and could be best had only from a senior. This meant students from lesser known law colleges did not have enough information on where to go and where not to go.
We’ve managed to change that (to a large extent). Internship experiences published on Lawctopus are NOT the perfect solution (they are subjective, and like any review, are susceptible to manipulation) but we believe that we’ve made quite a dent.
Working at a job is a huge investment. You literally devote a large part of your life to the organisations. A lot of times it involves staying away from parents, partners, and friends, in an alien city, all in the pursuit of making a mark, or money, or whatever rows your boat!
So do take out 15-30 minutes of your time and help the legal people make informed choices about their careers! Go go go!
