Welcome Staff

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 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 Staff 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.

The Penn Law Directory

The Penn Law Directory provides contact information for all faculty, staff, and students in the Law School.

You should update your information in the Law Directory using the Update My Information section.

Your Office Computer & Network Drives

All staff are provided with an office PC running Windows 7. You will find several network drives appear automatically when you log in. All files should be saved to the U drive or G drive. The U drive and My Documents folders are the same location. These drives are backed up automatically.
