Library Services

The Law Library offers a wealth of services to Suffolk University Law School students.
  • Our new subscription to the LexisNexis Digital Library gives you access to full-text eBooks, including study aids like the Understanding series, and more.
  • Research guides and treatises are a good way to begin your research when you are studying or writing a paper in an area of law that's new to you.  West Study Aids like Hornbooks and Nutshells are now available online!
  • See our Guide to Student Writing for Publication and Prizes to learn about how to get your papers published or enter them into competitions.
  • If a book or article you need is not available at the Moakley or Sawyer library, we can request it from another library through an interlibrary loan.
  • New students should see our Quicktips Guide for an overview of library resources and services.
  • If you need Bluebooking help, then our Bluebook Guide for Law Students is a great starting point.
  • Use our online reservation system to sign up for a group study room.
  • We have audio CDs with detailed lectures in more than 20 areas of law.
  • We encourage the use of CALI exercises in preparation for exams.
  • Watch our short legal research video tutorials on YouTube.
  • We can do advanced or refresher trainings in Westlaw, LexisNexis, and our research databases.
  • The Bibliography for Incoming Law Students is a basic guide for students who have asked for reading recommendations and want to learn more about law school and the legal process before they begin their official journey as law students.

Reference and research assistance is available in person at the Reference Desk in the Moakley Law Library, by email (, or by telephone (617-573-8516).
