Scott Peppet 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, the impact of new technologies on consumer contract law, and the ways in which technology is changing prostitution markets.
