Faculty & Staff: 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.

 

Attention Staff: ALL faculty and staff are required to enroll in PennKey Two-Step Verification. This provides an added layer of protection when accessing PennKey-protected web sites and applications.
