Faculty member Tyler Mulligan's article, "Economic Development Incentives Must be 'Necessary'," has been published in the February online edition of Harvard Law and Policy Review. In the article, Mulligan critiques courts' and legislatures' public benefit analysis for private enterprise, and proposes a framework for more robust judicial scrutiny of necessity when local governments consider awarding development subsidies. He emphasizes the key legal principle of constitutional gift analysis that there should be greater public control over public funds and facilities.

The Harvard Law and Policy Review invites innovative approaches to policy challenges by providing a forum for substantive debate between progressive legal scholars, policymakers, and practitioners.

Mulligan, Albert and Gladys Hall Coates Distinguished Term Associate Professor, 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 he now serves as faculty advisor for the initiative. His articles have also appeared in the North Carolina Law Review and Campbell Law Review.
