Description


How the establishment of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and a free press provided essential checks on the power of the Governor.


Checks and Balances: Press Freedom and an Independent Judiciary chronicles the pivotal establishment of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the birth of a free press. During the time of Governor Darling, Justice Forbes lays the groundwork for Australia's enduring separation of powers. This illuminating narrative underscores the indispensability of an independent judiciary and a vigilant press in safeguarding individual liberties. With poignant illustrations, it celebrates the rule of law's timeless promise-a shield against tyranny, ensuring equity for all. A must-read for families cherishing the pillars of justice, press freedom, and the rule of law.


"Forbes' ability to remain judicially independent and impartial despite constant pressure from Governor Darling set the foundation for the separation of powers in Australia. These checks and balances of an independent judiciary and freedom of the press have since become an established part of Australian life. The rule of law with checks and balances on those in power, is a wonderful protection of individual rights and freedoms to this day."
