  1. Hey All, Long time lurker, first time poster. I am a recent call (called in 2018) where I got my current position right out of law school via a family friend. I'm at a small full-service firm but I feel like I've reached my limits here and I'm looking for a change. The reasoning isn't really important, but I just had a question with respect to interviews and how to handle balancing answering interview questions while maintaining client confidentiality. In my previous career before law, interviews were always based around the STAR method (Situation, Task, Action, Result). Basically you would be required to describe a particular situation you faced, provide some details about the tasks involved, explain the actions you took to accomplish those tasks, and then outline the results obtained. However, I'm not sure how that reconciles with legal interviews. While common everywhere else, perhaps the legal industry doesn't use this method? Since I obtained my current role via a family friend, I've never actually had to interview for a legal role before so I'm not entirely sure what to expect. How does one balance describing their work experience/accomplishments in an interview, while also properly maintaining client confidentiality?
