Established in 1966, KERALA LAW ACADEMY (KLA) is a seat of excellence in legal education, consultancy, research, and in pioneering law reforms. The Academy’s prestigious institute, “the Kerala Law Academy Law College” is in Trivandrum, the capital city of Kerala, India, on a hill of sylvan splendours with a view of the Arabian Sea on one side and the Western Ghats on the other. The liberal ambience of the research wing “The Centre for Advanced Legal Studies and Research” (CALSAR), is conducive to igniting nascent thoughts and ideals. This finds vivid expression in “Academy Law Review” which has won international acclaim ever since its appearance in print in 1977. The moot teams of the Academy are the flag bearers in renowned international fora. The Academy’s social commitment is embedded in its socio-legal clinics and consultancy service. The college of law of the Academy is affiliated with the University of Kerala.

In 1968 the Academy made a request to the Government of Kerala to lease out an area of eleven acres and forty nine cents at Peroorkada, Trivandrum for establishing the Kerala Law Academy Law College.
