Non-lawyers working at law firms

What's the highest position a person without a degree--both a law degree and a regular old college degree--could legally attain at a law firm?

More specifically, the situation is this: Protagonist dropped out of college as an act of rebellion; he was supposed to follow in his father's footsteps and become a lawyer. Now he's 25 and finally caving into his aging father's demands. His father, who's a senior, founding partner of a successful firm, wants to use his weight to get Protagonist a job. How far up the ladder could this nepotism carry him? I'm looking for a position above a secretary, but obviously, below anything you need to be licensed for. What would be the job title be, and what basic duties would it involve?

Thanks very much!
