I am in the very same situation, many of the courses I have taken are online courses from a legit UG university.  I had done very well in one of my particular online courses and my instructer noted that at the end of the semester. I emailed him back to thank him for his comments and he offered to give me any advise on applying to law school.  Long story short I asked him if he would be willing to write me a recommendation (just this wednesday) during our second conversation and he said yes.  So, I would advise you to give it a shot, especially if it's from a professor who has attended law school they know the importance of LORs and the whole application procedure and are sometimes more inclined to help.  I know mine was.

Yea, you're definitely going to want to get a letter from one of your profs.  Have you thought about meeting your prof face-to-face?  You could explain how you want your prof to "spin" the recommendation.  That might make the process a little less awkward.

A LOR from a professor that is not extremely strong will probably do more harm than good.  So definitely do not have a prof write it, if they seem less than enthusiastic about it.  Although a rec from work is less than ideal, if it is strong it will be less damaging.
