"The law school at Washburn is a community of people who like and help each other. I love going to work every day in such a supportive environment. The best institutions change in subtle ways over time, and I always look forward to meeting each year's new group of students who will continue to shape the vibrant Washburn community."

Professor Glashausser received his bachelor's degree from Harvard College in 1990 and his law degree from Duke University School of Law in 1995. Following graduation from Harvard, he traveled to Tokyo, Japan, where he studied at the Yoshida Institute of Japanese Language and taught English.
