Peter Lee graduated from Yale Law School, where he was a member of The Yale Law Journal and a student director of the international human rights clinic. He joined the King Hall faculty after clerking for Judge Barry G. Silverman of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University, where he studied the history and philosophy of science. Professor Lee examines the intersection of science and society in his legal research, which explores the patent system’s impact on scientific and technological progress. In a related vein, Professor Lee’s work has also addressed the broader question of how intellectual property affects the creation and dissemination of ideas.

Professor Lee’s academic interests also include public international law, economic development, and globalization. He has pursued those interests in positions at the U.S. State Department, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Development Program, and the Korean Delegation to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
