Suffolkate (Suffolk University Student Newspapers)Suffolkate was a limited-run alternative student newspaper funded by the Student Bar Association and created by Suffolk University Law School students from 1970-1972, with the goal of highlighting issues important to the legal educational community and advocating for broader legal, social, and curricular changes. The Suffolkate evolved ostensibly to fill a communications gap existing within the Law School. From their editorial statement: "The students involved wanted the paper to be more than a source of school information, more than a school newspaper. Just exactly what the Suffolkate was to be, in precise terms, was not clear; yet all the people working for the newspaper agreed on an overall goal. Everyone involved felt strongly that the Suffolkate was to be a medium for political change. Implied in this was the further idea that the paper would serve as a medium to encourage political change on a much higher level than simply in our law school environment." -Suffolkate Editorial Staff, Volume 2, Issue 1, November 1970
The Suffolk Journal of Trial and Appellate Advocacy is published twice a year by the Moot Court Honor Board. It provides practical and in-depth analyses of current legal issues relating to trial and appellate practice. It is comprised of lead articles submitted by outside authors with expertise in their respective fields, and student-written Notes and Case Comments submitted by MCHB staff members. Journal members select a unique topic, research primary and secondary legal sources, analyze the legal issues facing the trial and appellate advocacy community, and write an original piece for publication.
