Attorney Joseph M. Busher has completed his ninth year of teaching as an Adjunct Instructor at the University Of Connecticut Law School, located in Hartford, Connecticut. 

The class focuses on teaching law students researching, writing and oral advocacy techniques.  After reviewing written materials and after in-class instruction and demonstrations on these topics, students present multiple oral arguments before panels of judges who pose a wide range of questions on the argument topic.  The students then are then presented with their final problem for the term.  The remainder of the term is spent preparing a written appellate brief taking one side on the legal dispute set forth in the problem.  The term concludes with each student presenting a 15 minute oral argument before a panel of three practicing judges or attorneys who serve as moot court judges.

This year’s final problem focuses on a tort claim adapted from the characters of the television series Breaking Bad. 

Attorney Busher is a partner with the Jackson O’Keefe, LLP, and has been with the firm since 1996 and has been a member of the Connecticut bar for 20 years.  Since 2008, he has also served as an Adjunct Instructor at the University Of Connecticut School Of Law, teaching a class on appellate practice and procedure.  He has received the CLMP designation as a Certified Litigation Management Professional by the CLM Alliance.  He has received Martindale-Hubbell’s highest Peer Review rating of “AV”.  He has also been continuously Peer Review rated as a Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters since 2006.  Attorney Busher has a wide variety of litigation experience, principally addressing insurance defense, insurance coverage, personal injury and appellate matters throughout the State of Connecticut. He also represents individuals and businesses from the East Haddam, Moodus, Colchester, and Salem area with regard to personal injury matters, wills, trusts, estate planning and litigation matters.
