Bio:
Scott Peppet is a Professor of Law at the University of Colorado Law School, where he has taught Contracts, Legal Negotiation, Counseling Family Enterprises, and Legal Ethics since 2000. His scholarship focuses in two areas: the ethics of alternative dispute resolution and privacy, technology and contract. In the former area he has published both an award-winning book - Beyond Winning (Harvard University Press) -- and various academic articles on the use of contingency fees by mediators, the use of mediation in transactions as opposed to disputes, and the ethics of collaborative law. His more recent scholarship on privacy, technology and contract has focused on the privacy problems of self-disclosure (Unraveling Privacy, Northwestern University Law Review 2011), the impact of new technologies on consumer contract law (Freedom of Contract in an Augmented Reality, UCLA Law Review 2012), and the ways in which technology is changing prostitution markets (Prostitution 3.0, forthcoming Iowa Law Review 2013). Prior to joining the Colorado faculty he taught as a Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School and was a Senior Fellow on Negotiation at the Harvard Negotiation Research Project. In 2002, CU students honored him with their Excellence in Teaching Award. He lives in Boulder with his wife, children, and Quarter-horse named Betsy.
