  1. Its funny how you ask for comments, put up tentative dates and then ignore them all. Have you guys even put up the entries?
    Must say, bunch of lazy guys! You make so much money, hire people to run the show dude!

  2. I have sent my entry in an email to Tanuj Kalia. Are we to expect some sort of confirmation?
    Also, please tell us the timeline as to when we could expect the results.

  3. i think its problematic that you are restricting this to a time period of april-july this year. for eg, National Law School, Bangalore has only a 3 week vacation in this time period, and most people do not intern then. Our main vacation period is around 7 weeks from Jan end to March beginning, and your time limit does not allow us to submit our entries for this competition.
    I understand that most colleges do have a long summer break, but if you actually want to make this inclusive for everyone, I think you should change the time period (maybe something like the last 1 year?).

  4. should i eligible for this without any intern , on next month i will start my intern ….it is possible i will share my experience of one month

  5. Kindly elaborate the social media rating point. Will the report be put on facebook and judged on the basis of likes?

  6. Can I write about two internships I have done back to back this summer? And can I write about international internships?

  7. If you have money why don’t you first reward the Lawctopus essay writing contest 2011 winners? We still have not received the certificates and the prize money as promised.

    • The certificates and prize money were a responsibility of the LYF (Liberal Youth Forum). As you know we’ve contacted them on your behalf repeatedly. Please contact them on this.

  8. What if our boss gets hold of our write up if you publish our names on social networking sites? Dear God, that’ll be disastrous! :O

  9. Can an internship in Karvy Stock Broking Pvt Ltd be considered for eligibility?
    Kindly elaborate the social media rating point. Will the report be put on facebook and judged on the basis of likes?
