It's all according to what you mean by "resources."

Generally speaking, their policy is that "All Suffolk University faculty have access to the Law Library. Suffolk University students needing legal research have access to the Law Library. With a current Suffolk picture ID, circulating books may be checked out. Statutes, reporters, looseleafs, and journals do NOT circulate." (Law Library webpage accessed 7/12)

Earlier, the Law School issued a written policy which added:

"CAS and SBS faculty and students cannot expect to use the Law Library for services (such as study space) and resources (either print or electronic) which can be met by other Suffolk University libraries, or by the public library."

So, members of the CAS/SBS community are welcome to check out books marked "LAW TREATISES (FL 5)," but you are not supposed to use the Law Library for a study hall or meeting space.  Nor will you be able to access Law School-only databases.

And it is essential to remember that you MUST have your Suffolk ID card on you to enter the Law Building (at 120 Tremont.)  And it is likely that you will be carded again when you enter the Library (on the 6th Floor of the building).
