UNC School of Government

Tyler Mulligan joined the School of Government in 2007, where he counsels state and local government officials and their partner organizations regarding development finance, community economic development, and revitalization efforts. Mulligan launched the School's Development Finance Initiative, which assists local governments with attracting private investment for transformative development projects, and now serves as director for the initiative. Prior to joining the School of Government, he practiced law with Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, PLLC, in Raleigh, where he represented investors and syndicators in structuring investments in real estate and related investment funds, and he represented corporations and local governments in site location and economic development incentive matters. Prior to private practice, Mulligan served as a Navy diver and JAG Corps officer. He is a member of the North Carolina State Bar. He earned a BA in public policy studies, summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, from Duke University and a JD from Yale Law School, where he was awarded the Yale University Elm-Ivy Award.
