The first D.V. Subba Rao Memorial Moot Court Competition that took off at Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU) on Saturday saw participation of teams from law colleges in Visakhapatnam and Hyderabad. The inaugural ceremony was presided over by DSNLU Vice-Chancellor R.G.B Bhagvath Kumar. The chief guest on the occasion was Chairman of the Sales Tax Appellate Tribunal Manvendra Nath Roy.

Addressing the gathering, Prof. Kumar said that D.V. Subba Rao was a man with varied experience known for his integrity and virtue. He was a great source of inspiration for the younger generation and could draw the attention of the entire country as well as the international circles too, he added.

Advocate D.V Somayajulu spoke about the distinct personality of his father D.V. Subba Rao and added that he was a man who earned respect. “He was one of the finest orators who dedicated his life to his profession. Coming from a Telugu medium background, he came a long way to improve his speaking skills,” advocate Somyajulu said. The reason why this moot court competition was being held was to underline the importance of speaking skills and to give a platform to improve it, he added.

Manvendra Nath Roy said that D.V Subba Rao had an illustrious professional career and was a great politician, sportsman and above all a great human being with high ethical values, who brought laurels to Visakhapatnam judiciary. He emphasised the importance of moot court and the opportunity it gave to students for developing their skills. “There must be a practical training in law like other professional courses. Apprenticeship is necessary for students. The advocate has to know how to argue, how to present the pleadings, how to cross examine and moot courts provide a glimpse of all of the above,” Mr Roy said.
