Job Description

Our company needs a 1 page brief on whether venue owners can be liable for a patron who leaves the premises drunk and then drives a vehicle.

The freelancer will be required to:
- find relevant Victorian (AUS) legislation that may apply
- find any relevant cases anywhere in Australia
- find SOME (no more than 3) international cases from Canada, New Zealand or England
- summarise the principles in these cases.

We will NOT require an in depth analysis of the legislation or cases. We simply need to be pointed in the correct direction.

The successful applicant will either have access to relevant online databases and proven legal research capabilities. Knowledge of Australian law would be preferable but not necessary.
