You could also combine the judging element of American Idol into it. After each side's oral argument, you could have the judges ripping into the lawyers. For example, "if I'm being honest, that was absolutely dreadful. I could hear the same legal arguments at any fourth-tier law school. You should sue your law school, but please hire another lawyer to do that since you're clearly unfit to practice law"


so as a law clerk, am i akin to a "line judge" in football? do i get to throw flags and then go confer with my judge?

My first thought was, let's not get carried away. However, upon more reflection, I'd say it's between you and your judge. If your judge wants you to have flag throwing power, well, you should have it. It would be interesting whether this would make clerkships with such power-sharing judges more desirable.
