Inaugurated in 2009, KDU MCDS is one of the most successful Mooting and Debating Societies functioning in Sri Lanka. The society functions with the view of inculcating young legal professionals who are committed to the ideals of the legal scholarship and discipline. KDU MCDS provides an excellent experience for pupillage interviews and future appearances in court, as well as networking opportunities with professionals in the field, and encourages students to excel in presentation and research in their respective fields. It holds weekly training sessions in both mooting and debating to provide an opportunity for the students to enhance their skills. Our members have taken part in various National and International competitions and secured championships in both platforms.
