Kerala Law Academy Law College, established in 1966 by the legal luminary Late Dr N. Narayanan Nair, who is the founder head of the institution, is a seat of excellence in legal education, consultancy, research and in pioneering law reforms. Formed in 1989, Kerala Law Academy Moot Court Society has an extensive training module which involves a spectrum of skill building lessons ranging from the development of the art of drafting to analysing problems and finding out legal remedies.

Mooting can best be described as an activity that comes closest to being a lawyer while still studying at law school. It involves identifying legal issues out of a complex factual scenario, doing exhaustive research on those issues to advance arguments with authorities, followed by drafting extensive written submissions and finally the gruelling orals before a bench of eminent judges. In a nutshell, it is everything a lawyer is expected to do once he starts practicing law.
The All-India Moot Court Competition put forward by KLA MCS has a legacy of 31 years in finding out the best mooters from law institutions from all over India. The latest iteration of Academy's prestigious National Moot Court Competition will be held under the aegis of the Kerala Law Academy Moot Court Society on 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th of February 2022 via virtual mode, owing to the ongoing pandemic.
