Is it beneficial/detrimental to have a Personal contact - long time family friend - write a letter to the law school he graduated from on my behalf??

I agree they should know you personally.  I am having an alumni write a letter on my behalf but I have worked directly for her as a paralegal for two years.

chances are they are going to ask you to write up a blurb they can edit, or at least ask for your resume and stuff to know how to create a LOR tailored to you.
