Students: 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.

Help! I Forgot my Password!


For JD ’21 and LLM ’19 students:

If you forgot your LawKey and need to reset, you can do so using the Office 365 password reset tool.

For all other students:

Please use the legacy password reset at until you have configured your Office 365 self service password reset settings. Once you have configured your Office 365 self service password reset settings, you can use the Office 365 password reset tool.


  • If you are enrolled in Challenge-Response: visit Attempt Challenge-Response to select a new password.
