The lecture focuses mainly on Wentworth's career at the Bar between 1824 and 1835. According to Governor Darling, Wentworth turned the newly created Supreme Court of New South Wales into a de facto parliament in his quest for trial by jury and a free press. Wentworth's campaigns for an elected legislature, self-government and what he called an Australian 'confederation' are also covered.
