ITS Online

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 the law directory. PennKey is used to access the wireless network, password protected sections of the law school website and the CMS, 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.

For additional security, ITS highly recommends that all staff members set up two-step verification for PennKey accounts. Go here for more information and instructions on setting up two-step verification.
