Do I need to add a little story that links in with my reasons for going into law? Or should I only write about my current position? I feel like a lot of people write that things like they are determined and hardworking, but they lack evidence for it. I want my linkedin to stand out.

It is not common to go into too much depth on LinkedIn so I would just be factual about your background and achievements

I don't think that you need a summary at all. Most students and applicants don't have one. If you're going to do one, a short statement of the stage you're at and what you're interested in/looking for should suffice (e.g. "I am a first year student at X. I have work experience in Y. I am currently looking for opportunities in Z.")
