FAYETTEVILLE — A $100,000 gift from a Dallas couple will support the Arkansas Law Review at the University of Arkansas.
The gift from Steve Caple, a graduate of the UA School of Law, and his wife Tracey will help renovate the area used by staffers of the student-led publication, which publishes four times a year. The space will be named in their honor.
“With this gift, we hope to be supportive of the School of Law. My fellow editorial board members and I devoted a tremendous amount of time to the Arkansas Law Review when we were students, and it is very close to my heart,” Caple said in a statement released by UA.
Caple is president of Unity Hunt, which manages the family holdings of Lamar Hunt, a businessman and founder of the Kansas City Chiefs football team. Hunt died in 2006.
Katie Hicks, incoming editor-in-chief of the law review, said in an email the student team is “ecstatic” about the donation.
“Donations like this do more than renovate office space; they elevate the journal, the law school, and the family of scholars that have chosen to publish with us in the past and that will choose to publish with us in the future,” Hicks said.
