Lawctopus is organizing a blogging competition for law students who are in love, had been in love, or are planning to be in love or have been anywhere around that.
Have you had a crush on someone? Write about it!
Dates? Good for you. Write. In love? Wow. Write.
Unrequited love? Aww. Write, still. Or throw in a mix of law and love?
Things didn’t go as planned? Writing is catharsis! Planning to get married soon? Tell us about your story.
Have tips on dating, love, relationships, attraction etc.? Send them to us!
Female, male, transgender, trans-sexual, lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual; write about gender and law and sex and law. Even short academic essays are welcome.
Give the writer, lawyer, feminist, masculinist and the lover in you a go.
Share lover letters, date experiences, write-ups, stories, photos, art, poems; anything! These should be original, of course!
Anything about love you’ve experienced or imagined in law school, write about it!
To participate you must be a law student/law graduate in any part of the world.
The deadline is February 15th.
So yes, you can write about your February 14th stories as well.
There’s no word limit.
Multiple entries are allowed.
Entries should not have been previously published anywhere online. (If it’s on your personal blog, that’s fine)!
We have the right to change the terms and conditions of the competition.
If you want to be anonymous, please mention ‘ANONYMOUS’ in caps in title of the post.
How to submit your entries? Check the ‘submit a post’ option on the navigation bar of Lawctopus.
