Welcome Visiting Faculty & Adjuncts

The Law School Information Technology Services (ITS) department welcomes you to Penn Law. We have a broad range of computing, media, and network resources available. This page is intended to provide you with the technical information to get started.

Your Accounts at Penn Law: LawKey & PennKey

LawKey and PennKey are the computing logins used at the Law School. LawKey is used to access classroom computers. PennKey is used to access the wireless network, Zoom, Canvas and web sites/applications, library databases, and other University resources. Both usernames are the same, but they need to be activated separately and we recommend you pick different passwords for each.

New faculty will receive LawKey/PennKey activation details via email.

View more information on PennKey and LawKey.

Canvas LMS

Canvas has great features for posting course materials, communicating and interacting with your students and providing class and student calendars.  You can also use this site to access your course photo roster, create an online seating chart, schedule appointments with students, create surveys/quizzes, and download a grading sheet.
