Provide a short explanation of how you conducted this research. What type of plan did you follow?

Now that the research is complete your supervising attorney has asked you to draft a letter to the client. Please explain to them the law. You should include citations, but should try to avoid legalese. Also provide them with any of the websites that you think they could visit to provide more information. It is important to clearly outline the basics of the research plan used and how you went about prioritizing the sources and statutes. Make sure to provide the client with your contact information, so they can contact you with any further questions they might have.
