Supreme Court Clerkships: How much money would it take for you to have to put up with Scalia?

About $200,000 these days, according to the Post's discussion of how much a law firm will pay in bonuses to hire an ex-clerk. It's probably ten times as much for an ex-Posner clerk, given his crotchetiness. See also ELS: will law schools begin offering bonuses to potential professors who were scotus clerks? Amar would be pissed at this. What Law Schools Can Learn from Billy Beane and the Oakland Athletics, 82 Tex L. Rev. 1483 (2004). What about "What You Can Learn from Buddy Bell and the Kansas City Royals"?

I actually wouldn't mind being Scalia's clerk. You know he likes an intellectual fight, and so long as he knows i'm not a yes-man, I'd like to play the contrarian.

But maybe not for Posner.
