United States Attorney for Utah John Huber will discuss “The United States Constitution: Foundation for the Rule of Law” at Weber State University Sept. 17 in honor of Constitution Day.

The campus community is invited to the presentation and a complimentary breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. in the Hurst Center Dumke Legacy Hall.

Huber will continue the conversation during a presentation and question and answer session with students at the Wildcat Theater, beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Former president Barack Obama appointed Huber as the United States Attorney and lead federal law enforcement official in Utah in June 2015. In 2017, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions nominated Huber to continue in that position, a nomination unanimously approved by the U.S. Senate.

Huber earned his law degree at the University of Utah. He began his public service in the Weber County Attorney's Office, and later served as the chief prosecutor for West Valley City before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

During his tenure as U.S. Attorney, Huber focused on violent crime, combating the opioid crisis and fraud. He has worked to enhance law enforcement and crime prevention through strong community partnerships.  

The Constitution Day event is sponsored by the Olene S. Walker Institute of Politics & Public Service in the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences.
