No "Why I Want to go to Law School" stuff in my PS?

 So, to my knowledge, a PS doesn't necessarily need someone to state why they are choosing law school, correct? I've read that if a law school wants to know explicitly why you want to go to law school they will ask you for a Statement of Purpose instead of a PS. Still, my PS doesn't have anything about why I want to go to law school; what do you think?

No, you don't have to explain why you'd like to go to law school, unless of course the writing prompt specifies.  Most schools don't care why you'd like to go to law school or what you'd do with your degree since this will likely change once you get there.  Instead, think of the personal more as a "why should they choose you" type of essay.  I'm sure you're fine. Good luck!
