Welcome Faculty

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 the classroom computers and Penn Law web resources. PennKey is used to access myCourses, the wireless network and library databases (among other University resources). Both usernames are the same, but they need to be activated separately and we recommend you pick different passwords for each.

You should have received an activation link and activation code from ITS. Once your computing logins have been created and activated, you may access the following resources.

Your Help Resources

Our ITS Help Online site is organized based on your affiliation with the Law School. Visit the blog homepage and click on Faculty to see all of your resources. You should pay special attention to the New to Penn Law section at the top of the page.

Penn Law Email Address

All full-time faculty receive a full Microsoft Exchange account for email, calendar, and contacts. Your address has been created automatically and takes the form of lawkey@law.upenn.edu.

For more information, visit the Faculty & Staff Email Accounts page for information on webmail and modifying your address..

Canvas LMS

This Fall we are using a new learning management system called Canvas. 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.

Getting Started in Canvas: https://www.law.upenn.edu/its/docs/canvas/getting-started
