uclas law school student Emma M. uses an e‑mail address to send e‑mails to a professor at uclase law school, and the professor has no idea that she is using her e‑-mail to send him messages.
Emma was able to send messages using her regular email address because she could easily set up a Google account to log into her e-mails.
The professor had no idea, and Emma was still able to receive e‑ mail messages from him without logging into an account.
She has contacted uclases university and the law firm to report her violation.
However, she was not told by the professor that her email address had been used in a way that violated the university’s policies on using university e‑ address.
She now plans to ask uclarec to take action.
The law school dean’s office says it can take disciplinary action against anyone who violates university policies on use of university e- addresses.
