That would strike a balance in that, most judges want to see 3 semesters of grades anyways, so there isn't a huge incentive to hire earlier than that, except for some outliers such as Kozinski. And then many more judges would be willing to stick to the plan and it could actually be effective. Add a ban on exploding offers (with perhaps a 24 hr/48 hr/1 week minimum period to accept or decline) and that's not a terrible system.
Stop it with your logic and reasonableness.
