Beyond LexisNexis and Westlaw 

Legal research doesn't begin and end with LexisNexis and Westlaw. Broaden your horizens by coming to a database training session for an overview of law library databases as well as research tips and strategies. Could be the most productive half hour of your semester!

Trainings will be held in room 725 in the library on the following dates:

Tuesday, August 26th at 2pm
Wednesday, August 27th at 5pm
Thursday, August 28th at 3pm

Questions? Stop by the law library reference desk on the 6th floor of the library, email lawref@suffolk.edu, or call us at 617-573-8516.

Welcome Back! 

It's the start of a new year, and the law library has some help as you ease (or jump) back in.

First, we'll be offering "roaming reference" services on the 4th floor near the cafeteria today (11-1 and 5-6), tomorrow (12-2 and 5-6), and this Thursday (11-2 and 5-6). Stop by and meet a reference librarian, ask questions, and learn about upcoming events. Pick up a law library pen/highlighter -- and some candy! Of course, the reference desk in the library will also be staffed for its regular 9-9 hours. Have questions or need research help? Drop by the reference desk, call us at 617-573-8516, or email lawref@suffolk.edu.

If you haven't listened to the legal refresher podcasts, now's a great time to do so. Go to Suffolk University Law School on iTunes U to find the legal refresher podcasts on researching case law and researching statutes. A pdf handout may also be downloaded and printed. A very quick and easy way to bring back some skills that may have slipped away over the summer. While you're at Suffolk Law on iTunes U, check out the legal writing tips provided by LPS. Highly recommended.

Welcome! We'll be giving brief library tours to new law students between 7:00 and 9:00 PM on Tuesday, August 12. Please stop by the law library on the 6th floor for a tour.

And stop by the reference desk any time with questions, research help, or just to get pointed in the right direction!
