Mangaluru, Dec 10, 2020: Legal profession is no doubt a very challenging one. Brilliant arguments coupled with intellect as well as the genuine concern to deliver justice to one’s clients contribute a great deal in success in this field. M. K. Vijaykumar from Karkala is an outstanding and distinguished lawyer whose achievements in a span of five decades have won him the coveted state level Rajyotsava Award.
A cheerful personality, Vijay Kumar has great pride in the fact as many as 55 lawyers mentored by him are serving across the nation. More importantly, he points out that the present Supreme Court Judge Justice Abdul Nazeer too was mentored by him and considers this as a matter of immense pride.
Vijay Kumar had his early education in his home district and later moved to Bengaluru where he did his B.SC and graduated in law from the Government Law College in Bengaluru.
He returned to his home district in 1967 and pursued the legal profession under the then renowned civil lawyer Manjayya Hegde and later after two years began practising independently.
Today he is an immensely happy and contented man and looking back says he has given his best to his profession.
