It’s been 3 years since Lawctopus first went up live!

Here is a brief look on how we’ve come here.

lawctopus logo

This was the first logo.

You can of course see a lot of octopuses there.

Basically these octopuses are created out of an imprint of a hand.

The tagline for Lawctopus then went: helping hand for law students.

Also, the word ‘law’ is in a different background.

That was to clarify two things: one, that it’s about law; second that ‘C follows ‘W’. There is no ‘O’ in between.

It’s Lawctopus, not LawOctopus. P

ronounced as Lock-toe-puss; not Law Octopus.

This was the second logo.

It’s of course an octopus, with 7 colourful arms +1 (copied from Google+ then)

We discarded this pretty fast because it resembled the male organ.

 This is the logo we use now. 

The clock’s hands make up the alphabet ‘L’ of Lawctopus.

The time they show is 5:08 (eight minutes past five).

5 stands for the number of co-founders.

8 is for the ‘octa’ of the Octopus.

The hour hand is slow, nearly unmoving, very much like our core focus of helping law students.

The minute hand signifies our approach towards doing things; where we try to be quick and innovative.

Also there is a philosophical meaning attached: of time being the purest, eternal law.

I am the Admin of Lawctopus. I am for law students, of law students and by law students. I am Torts and Contracts and moots and internships. I am your boyfriend! And your girlfriend too! Mentor. Friend. Junior. Senior. I am the footnote in your research paper. Foreword in your life. The jugaad for your internship. The side gig which earns you bucks. I am Maggi. Pocket money too.


  1. confluence of ideas!!the last logo is the most impressive one…logically as well as emotionally(where you declare ‘time’ as pure&eternal law).

  2. This is a new year and a new progressivw year for law octopus. So i would like to suggest a change in the logo of lawctopus…
    1. make the shape of clock ‘octagonal’, will give more emphasis on the word ‘octa’.
    2. the minute hand of the clock should be given a shape of infinity symbol (i.e., the horizontal version of numerical ‘8’) to mark an infinite and never ending presence of lawctopus.

    Many Many congratulations to all of you!

  3. @Random – Its an expression of their happiness and pride from what they were to what they are; from where it all began. You sure could go and whine somewhere else, douche.
