Tips for Law School Success

How Can Librarians Help?

Suffolk's Legal Research Librarians will:
  • Help you find a paper topic.
  • Offer 2-credit advanced legal research courses each year, like a remotely synchronous Massachusetts Legal Research course.
  • Teach one-on-one trainings, refreshers, and brief library workshops on Westlaw Edge, Lexis+, Bluebook, Word formatting, Zoom, and more!
  • Introduce you to study aids and exam prep tools.
  • Help you navigate the Bluebook.
  • Help you find relevant resources.
  • Map out cost-effective research strategies with you.

About the Research Desk

Faculty, students, and alumni are encouraged to visit our Research Desk, located on the 6th floor of the Law Library, with any research questions they may have. The Research Desk is staffed between 10am-6pm, Monday through Thursday, and between 10am-5pm on Friday.

Current students who are unable to meet with a legal research librarian during regular Research Desk hours, or who have a more involved legal research question or would like training on a particular database, can set up an appointment. To schedule an appointment at a specific time, email us at with your research question and your general availability. We typically set up one-on-one meetings between 9am-6pm but we do our best to accommodate students outside of that timeframe.
