Consulting with a law degree

What job do you have that uses your law degree but didn't require you to take the bar and, ideally, you're able to do it as a side gig?

If you have a (US) law degree, have not taken the bar, and will not be returning to school, what can you do? Ideally, it's a consulting gig that can transition from something PT to FT in the future. Open to considering a certificate of some sort. Assume several years of working in an office in an unrelated field.
Not a paralegal
May not be contract review (companies in my area do NOT hire
non-bar grads for contract review)
Must not require going back to school for another degree
Divorce/Court Mediation is not possible (the courts in my area will
not certify a mediator who is not a licensed attorney)
Taking the bar is not an option
