Editor’s note: This is the first article in a new nine-part series on making a job transition as a lawyer. Links to previous series by the authors follow this article.

The legal job market is waking from its doldrums brought on by the recession. In the optimistic hope that this means more lawyers will be able to land a job — if not the dream job, at least one that moves them one step closer — we are presenting a series of articles aimed at helping you through the transition of your career move. We will cover various aspects of assessing and negotiating offers, juggling multiple offers (if you are lucky!), handling counter-offers, giving notice, gracefully leaving your old job (if you have one), and settling in to your new environment.
