Attorney and U.S. Air Force veteran, Justin Golart, speaks at WVSU First Amendment event

Posted: Updated:

Federal attorney and United States Air Force veteran Justin Golart spoke at West Virginia State University on Monday as part of an event focusing on the First Amendment.

Golart delivered the keynote address at the WVSU College of Business and Social Sciences Spring convocation. His speech was called: "The First Amendment: Indecent, Commercial and Corporate Speech."

Golart talked about the U.S. Supreme Court's journey in coming up with the current definition of freedom of speech. "Largely it was to present certain areas of the law to these students. But also, to encourage these students that if this is something they are interested in, to go ahead and pursue it further," said Golart.

Golart currently works as an Honors Attorney for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons. From 2006 to 2009, he served as an assistant professor in the West Virginia University Department of Aerospace Studies.

Golart was also active with the Air Force ROTC Program at WVU.
