Lawctopus Turns 4 Today! [Rant Follows, Read at your own Peril]

Four years ago we started Lawctopus as a website for law students, a website by law students.

It was a fun project, started straight out of an NUJS’ hostel room.

We had an idea in mind, but had little idea what shape it will take.

Over the last 4 years, you (law students) have made it into a forum that’s very useful for law students, a website which checks all the boxes of a successful, popular website (75000+ unique readers a month) and a start-up which is self-sustaining (15L+ of annual profits).

But yes, we’ve miles to go. In terms of content, design, the little projects that we launch, we’ve got a lot to work on. And rest assured, that we will continue to work hard and continue to improvise!

Sometimes it’s the doubters smirk which eggs us on, sometimes it’s a friend’s encouraging word, sometimes the random message from the random law student and sometimes it’s the enticing deal by a big advertiser.

But what keeps us going day in and day out is a realization that it is Lawctopus’ dharma to serve law students.

Thank you for your trust and for your contributions till now. Here’s a hoping that you continue to repose your trust on Lawctopus.
