Speed Dating on Areas of Law - 2nd Annual Halloween Event at the St. Louis Zoo

About this Event

The Defense Collaborative provides a fresh spin on education. The event will consist of round table discussions promoting collaborative learning, small discussions and debates versus classroom/conference room/panel presentations.

Rules as to All Topics Except Substance Abuse: There will be eight to ten (8-10) round tables with ten (10) seats at each table. Each table has a different area of law with two (2) to three (3) speakers at each. The speakers (a lawyer at each table) stay at the table the entire time. The rest of the attendees rotate so they can learn about more areas of law. Each rotation happens every forty-five (45) minutes from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm with fifteen (15) minute breaks. This goes on for four (4) hours, so each attendee gets to collaborate on four (4) different areas of law. It creates an environment of discussion and debating versus someone or a panel just talking AT you.

Rules as to the Substance Abuse Table: There will be one (1) ethics/substance abuse round table with ten (10) seats. The speaker, Matthew Pelikan, will stay at the table the entire time. The rest of the attendees rotate so they can learn about more areas of law. Each rotation happens every sixty (60) minutes from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm with no break so you’ll have to quickly move to your next table after this round. This goes on for four (4) hours. It creates an environment of discussion and debating versus someone or a panel just talking AT you.
