Hi all

https://www.legalcheek.com/event/sec...hell-and-ulaw/

I received an email from Legal cheek for an event. I had a look and, in order to attend, you have to send them your CV. This is ridiculous. A CV contains very private info - home address and contact details. Why is that needed merely to 'attend' a so-called 'event'.

This seems to me like some underhanded chicanery. Just an opportunity for UofLaw to target saps.

Why not just ask them why they need a CV?

1. It could be marketing.
2. It could be if they are impressed they can offer you a job.
3. It might be a way of verifying that you are a legitimate, interested party and not a competitor or an idiot messing them about?

It's something they have done for a while now. I've never had anyone contact me about it (that could also be because it's **** lol and no one wants me). I've never read what they actually need it for but i would imagine it would be to ensure you are legit as tigger said.

Legal Cheek events are ****e.

If this event is done remotely they don't need to be selective because they probably have unlimited capacity. There's also no telling where that CV could end up.
