Roland Escher: Academic

Roland earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Amherst College in 1998, and received a J.D. (Juris Doctor) from The Catholic University of America in May 2004. He is also an active member of the District of Columbia Bar.

Over the years, Roland's academic and professional activities have alternated between the private sector and non-profit organizations. In college, Roland majored in philosophy. But he also covered a wide variety of liberal arts classes and worked in Mali, West Africa, during one summer. After graduating from Amherst College (Class of '98), he worked for a large corporate law firm in New York City. That experience motivated him to enroll in law school at Catholic University, where he specialized in corporate and securities law. With that background, Roland has attempted to leverage the parallels that exist between public companies and non-profit organizations.

During his last year of law school, Roland further developed his strong interest in non-profit organizations. The culmination of that non-profit focus was a directed research paper on Accounting Standards for Non-Profit Organizations, which featured a comparative analysis of the American FAS 117 and Swiss GAAP FER 21 non-profit accounting standards.
