From the Forward by Dean Thomas J. Romig: "With eloquence and candor, former Dean James Concannon has compiled a historical piece about Washburn University School of Law that only he can deliver. ... Like an archeologist carefully excavating a significant historical site, Dean Concannon has found rare nuggets of information from peers, former students, staff members, and friends of the law school. He delves beyond the bedrock to uncover the substance of relationships and authentic accounts of the law school's storied life. ... Washburn Law's main focus always has been and always will be on its students. In its 100-plus years of educating some of the brightest and most dedicated individuals ever to write a brief or argue a case, Washburn University School of Law has maintained its core values of respect for students, emphasis on student learning, faculty collegiality and camaraderie, and providing a caring atmosphere."

James M. Concannon is a Distinguished Professor of Law at Washburn University School of Law. He joined the faculty in 1973 and served as Dean from 1988 until 2001. He is the school's second longest serving Dean and in academic year 2012–2013 will match Professor James Ahrens as the school's longest serving faculty member.
