Career options for a JD that don't require a law license?


Recommended Posts

Title mostly speaks for itself.  I won't bore you with my sob story, but for reasons relating to character and fitness, I am most likely unable to get barred.  What are my options?  My background is as follows: 

  • 2017 JD grad, tier II law school, middling grades, no law review, moot court or trial team.  Some student org leadership positions. Utterly unremarkable. 
  • Fluent in Hindi and Spanish
  • All internships in law school were at public defenders' offices or legal aid
  • Seven Sisters undergrad; Sociology and Anthropology major, Spanish minor.  Did very well (magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa)
  • Work experience between undergrad and law school was an educational non-profit (AmeriCorps) and domestic violence agency
  • Will have completed a 2 year judicial clerkship by August 2019
