For the last four months, he has served as a legal intern at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands. He has been part of the team prosecuting Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladi on counts of genocide, crimes against humanity, and violations of the laws of war during the devastating Yugoslav conflicts of the early 1990s. Now in the last month of his internship, he will then travel in Europe and apply to law school, having received his bachelor’s in political science from DePauw University in May 2016.  His parents are John and Sherrie Burger.
