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.

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. Dear Kaliaji,

    I know you have been busy. Offering Lawctopus as a forum for students from various institutions to express their support to the oppressed JNUites is undoubtedly commendably!

    But I hope you have not forgotten this competition!! If you don’t do what you ordinarily do and devote all your time responding to the govt (be it in support or be it in protest), it means that you have allowed the govt to set the agenda for your life and actions. Don’t let this happen! Keep protesting but keep doing lawctopus things too!

    Are you going to publish more entires apart from the one that have been published already? andd… kab aayenge results???

    • Results always take time, considering the load of emails and news that they publish it’s fair we all wait for the results. Amazing how you can blame them. Instead we all should thank them they have doing all they can. I cannot even imagine what my law life would have been without their internship experiences and legal stay tight.

    • Dear Scooter,

      1. Lawctopus is a forum available to ‘all’ law students. Side note: No educational institute I know of has released any statement against JNU students.

      2. We’ve been publishing a lot of posts of late, so rest assured that Lawctopus is doing fine, dearie.

      3. All the good/publishable entries have been published.

      4. Results bhi aa gaye hain.

      Khush ki koi aur seva karein aapki?
