1/ If I were a judge and learned that a clerkship applicant had read all--or even more than a handful--of my opinions, it'd be virtually disqualifying: pandering that demonstrated horrendous judgment and overweening ambition.

2/ Do other profs actually give such advice? Of course, if there are a handful of egomaniacal judges who expect applicants to have absorbed their life's work, students should be alerted about them, but I wouldn't be terribly eager to advise clerking for such a judge.
3/ Wholly apart from the "how to dress" controversy, if this is truly the sort of advice that #YaleLawSchool students are receiving these days--the example they're being encourage to follow--then I don't envy the challenge for @GerkenHeather in recovering the school's bearings.
