Welcome Scholars

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. PennKey is used to access myCourses/Canvas LMS, the wireless network and library databases (among other University resources) and some Penn Law web 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.

Instructional Technology

Our classrooms are well equipped. In order to use the technology, please submit media requests via Canvas.

For more information, visit the Scheduling Recordings and Media Guide.

For assistance, contact or (215) 898-9570.

Personal Laptops

If you are interested in using your personal laptop at the Law School, you will need to prepare it to connect to our network. Access to the wireless internet requires a PennKey. If you have not set yours up, please contact us at

Visit the Wifi guide to get your laptop online.


All printing, photocopying, and scanning needs for scholars are met by multiple multifunction stations throughout the Law School. All scholars receive $120 print credit on their PennCard each semester. At the beginning of each semester, your available printing credit will be set to $120, in addition to funds that you have added yourself using the PennCash machine.

For more information about printing, visit our Printers Overview page.
