Students: LawKey & PennKey Account Help

While at Penn Carey 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.

ALL students are required to enroll in Two-Step Verification (aka MFA) for both PennKey and LawKey accounts as well as enroll in PennKey SSPR (Self-Service Password Reset).

LawKey & PennKey? What’s the Difference?

Your LawKey (or Microsoft 365 account) is used to access your email, calendar, Teams, and other Microsoft 365 services. Your PennKey is used for the Canvas LMS, AirPennNet, and other resources. Please see below for specifics.



Microsoft 365 Resources including:

  • Email/Calendar
  • SharePoint Online
  • Teams

PennKey Account

  • Canvas LMS
  • Password protected sections of the Law school web site
  • AirPennNet (WiFi)
  • Path@Penn
  • Central Library Resources
  • The Law Directory
