Adjuncts: LawKey & PennKey Account Help

While at Penn Law, you will make frequent use of two accounts: LawKey & PennKey. Both accounts share the same username, but need to be activated separately. We recommend you pick different passwords for each account.

Your LawKey is used to access a set of services provided by the Law School including computer/kiosk logins as well as the Law Directory. Your PennKey is used for the myCourses site and Canvas LMS as well as resources provided by the central campus. Please see below for specifics.
