Adjuncts: LawKey & PennKey Account Help

At Penn Law, you will make frequent use of two accounts: your LawKey and your PennKey. Each account is activated separately, but share the same username. While we don’t recommend it, you are allowed to use the same password for both accounts.


If you need a PennKey or forgot your password, please call 215.898.2589 or email

If you are not sure if you know your PennKey password, you can use the Test My PennKey tool.


If you forgot your LawKey password, please visit the Get LawKey Tool. An activation link and password reset code will automatically be sent to your email forwarding address.

To change your LawKey password, please visit the Change LawKey Password To
