Criteria for Adjudication
1. Detailed, complete and helpful
We love details; details help us all make informed choices about our internships. Do make sure your internship experience has lots of useful details!
Please make sure that the internship experience written by you contains all the details that a regular internship experience on Lawctopus does. Extra points for including helpful details like the ‘contact details, finding accommodation’ etc.
And it should be helpful. Anyone who reads your piece should get some idea about what to expect from the internship.
2. Be Honest
If it was a bad experience, write about it without fear! If it was a superb experience, go full on!
Your internship experience will be read by 1000s of law students in years to come and they’ll make their internship/career decisions based on what you write. Please be detailed and honest. It’s your duty towards others.
However, please do not defame (you know the law and exceptions) and please do not send in an advertorial write-up.
3. Be Creative
Surprise us. If you want to run wild with your ideas, we would love to hear them. You don’t need to stick to a template. As long as you are giving the required information, feel free to be as literary.
Guidelines for Lawctopus Internship Experience Writing Competition:
- You can submit more than one entry.
- There is no word limit. (But a humble request to not ramble.)
- Don’t write about an internship before 2020. The more recent the experience, the better.
- You can write about internship at any organization.
- Copyright over the write-ups will vest with Lawctopus. All entries will be posted on Lawctopus (except plagiarized, advertorial write-ups etc.).
- Lawctopus is entitled to extend/tweak/cancel this competition in case sufficient entries are not received. If we cancel the competition, the entries will be returned back to the writers.
- Don’t plagiarize. We get to know! If your internship experience has been posted on any website (including Lawctopus), don’t submit that entry. Only submit fresh pieces for the competition.
