LAW: Hey, I Won That Prize Already!

So, from Wonkette we learn that one of the networks is doing a "reality" show where the prize is a job at a law firm. Or, as the notice calls it, "YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A LUCRATIVE POSITION WITH A PRETIGIOUS LAW FIRM!" As one Wonkette reader (well, me, actually, but I can still quote myself) emailed her, "Presumably, if the show is anything like real law practice, you get extra points for pointing out that 'PRETIGIOUS' is not a word."

The contest: "Compete in mock trials/courtroom showdowns on prime-time TV." I'm guessing they only show the trial, not the preparation . . . my question is, what sort of "PRETIGIOUS LAW FIRM" wants to tell its clients it is handing out jobs on the basis of a TV show? I'd guess a plaintiffs' firm that does a lot of trial work, since the show appears to be testing trial skills rather than some of the less visual lawyering skills.
