Who I am and Why I Created SCOPE: Elizabeth LeReverend


    My name is Elizabeth LeReverend. I am a licensed paralegal and I created SCOPE in April, 2013. The online magazine quickly became the go-to source for all things paralegal.

    Paralegal SCOPE is the only source of news, features and information for Ontario’s 6,000 paralegals.

SCOPE’s success can be attributed to two facts: it filled an unmet need; and its publisher combines journalistic skill with legal acumen, to create a one-of-a-kind product that raises the bar on legal writing, research and reporting.

SCOPE gives paralegals the unbiased reporting and information they deserve. SCOPE promotes access to justice, by informing the public about paralegal regulation and practice areas.

    Journalistic Quality, Paralegal Focus

As a full-time reporter, I focused on the “crime beat,” covering murders, police and emergency services, court and other legal issues. My reporting earned several regional and national awards for feature and news writing.

Now, I cover all things paralegal — everything that affects this newest legal profession. All eyes are on Ontario, the only jurisdiction to regulate non-lawyer providers of legal services. Paralegals are part of the solution to Access to Justice, ensuring that the public can get the legal help they need, when they need it.

    SCOPE — the Only Media Covering Paralegals

People who care about legal information recognize and support SCOPE. Case summaries and commentaries are listed at CanLII Connects. SCOPE articles are listed at Your Legal Rights, a legal information provider. SCOPE is a recommended resource at the Great Library blog, and is listed with Canadian Law Blogs.

Take advantage of the SCOPE advantage and reach legal professionals by advertising in SCOPE.

    Day 4 at Seneca to become paralegal. This site looks like a great asset to go along with my schooling. Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Debra. You have chosen an excellent program. Best of luck with your studies.

  2. I have been in plate denial for almost 10 years. I became disabled as a result of a motor vehicle accident and as a result I am unable to pay. As per the recent rulings I believe that I am well begin the statute of limitations with regards to plate denial and 407 being able to pursue legal action.

    Is it now possible to get the plate denial withdrawn without having to make payment or payment arrangement?

    If you can’t answer can you point me in the direction of someone who can help?

  3. I have said it before and I will say it again. You do awesome work and I think it is a must read for every paralegal regardless of their practice areas. The best compliment I can give is that even after 20+ years doing this you remind me that there is always more to learn.

    I am envious. Your ability to scribe all things well, right down to the syntax, while not necessarily causing me to pause, does open a space delegated to your articles.

  5. Well done and a great asset to the profession.
