Sure, it's okay to note an upward trend in your grades to demonstrate commitment & maturity.
P.S. Be brief as upward grade trends are expected of college students by law school admissions officers. A drop in grades requires an addendum, while an upward trend may be noted.

No. Do not mention it. They'll see it and not care as it is.
