Roland Burris was an Exchange Student in Germany

Now that it looks like Roland W. Burris will be seated in the Senate I did some digging on his background to see how friendly he will be towards international education policy. His credentials certainly qualify him for a seat in the U.S. Senate and he was an exchange student at the University of Hamburg in Germany studying international law. Many people in high profile/leadership positions throughout the United States studied abroad but don’t mention this as part of their credentials or part of their biographies. This exchange experience in Hamburg was influential enough for Roland Burris to mention it in his staff profile on the Gonzalez Saggio & Harlan LLP website where he has been serving as Senior Counsel until his appointment to the United States Senate.
