Get involved

Legallypedia aims to become a helpful resource to help Indian lawyers and law students research jobs and careers, law schools and anything remotely legal and India-related. All content will be written by lawyers and students for lawyers and students.

All content should be genuinely helpful and convey important information and also partly also a personal touch and feel of a place.

For this, Legallypedia needs your help!

Mooting Premier League

The first major Legallypedia project will be to create a list and contact details for all major moots in India and abroad in preparation for the 2010-11 edition of Legally India's Mooting Premier League sponsored by magic circle law firm Allen & Overy.

Click here for a list of moot court competitions where Indian law schools participate and that are part of the MPL 3.

Law schools

A Legallypedia side project will be to create a useful and unbiased directory of India's various law schools. Each article should contain original information about a law school - written by students for students. Please do not just copy and paste articles from Wikipedia or the school's website.

Please improve or create the article about your law school with helpful and unbiased information for prospective joiners and recruiters.

Indian law firms

Legallypedia is gradually looking to create a database of Indian law firms, which will be helpful for those researching jobs or the legal market in general.

A very basic starter list of Indian law firms and a few bare-bone profiles here. We have not yet made a start on legal process outsourcing (LPO) firms.

Please expand the profiles of each firm with procedures and contact details for internship applications, as well as descriptions of the type of work offered to interns and young lawyers.

Legallypedia also maintains a list of starting salaries that the top Indian recruiters pay graduates.

What is the Legallypedia Wiki?

Legallypedia is a so-called "wiki" and using it is very simple. It is based on the same collaborative software that has made the excellent Wikipedia such an amazing resource for millions.

Just like Wikipedia, Legallypedia can not exist without your honest help and relies on reader contributions that are accurate, unbiased and verifiable. In short, let's make sure Legallypedia is full of facts.

Articles on Legallypedia will hopefully help current and future generations of law students and lawyers by sharing collective knowledge and contributing towards more transparency in the legal market.

Anyone who creates a free Legally India account can publish or edit articles on Legallypedia.

Please visit this page to learn more about what Legallypedia is and what it is NOT (e.g.: not about kittens).
