Seasons come and seasons go, but Paralegal SCOPE Magazine continues to hold its own.
Just last spring, the online magazine went live, quickly making its mark and generating a loyal following. Before SCOPE, no single source of journalistic quality, unbiased and reliable information existed for P1 licensees. Now we have an impartial publication that focuses completely on the issues that affect the paralegal scope of practice.
I’m proud of the SCOPE contributors. These licensees write about their expertise, their struggles, their professional journeys, their organizations, celebrations and opportunities to connect.
It has been wonderful to see the paralegal community embrace SCOPE as the go-to source for the profession. This magazine satisfies the thirst for information, education and connection that characterizes paralegals. It will continue to meet that need and to grow, along with the profession — itself a mere six years old.

The next quarter promises to be an important time for paralegals and, therefore, SCOPE.
Election season is upon us. Many are deciding whether to run for the Paralegal Standing Committee in 2014.
Significant legislation, including bills that would affect practice areas and strengthen the governance role of paralegals, are before Standing Committees of the Legislature. The two largest professional organizations are amalgamating. Lobbying efforts continue, to expand practice areas, into immigration in particular. Access to Justice initiatives that could affect paralegals provide a backdrop to many paralegal-related discussions at the federal and provincial levels.
SCOPE has provided, and will continue to give, paralegals the impartial and reliable coverage they deserve, on these topics and the day-to-day issues that affect us.
Thank you, SCOPE readers and supporters and contributors.
