Hello Mr. XYZ,
Per our conversation this past July, I am writing to inform you that I have submitted my application to XXX law school. As I had previously mentioned to you, I have decided to apply through the early decision program. I look forward to you and your colleagues reviewing my application.

Best,

Per our conversation sounds a little bit too formal. I'd also add that you enjoyed talking to him, and then thank him for his time.

Hello Mr. XYZ,
As discussed in our meeting this past July, I am writing to inform you that I have submitted my application to XXX law school. As I had previously mentioned to you, I have decided to apply through the early decision program. I truly appreciate you taking the time to sit down to speak with me. Our conversation is really what cemented my interest in XXX.

I look forward to you and your colleagues reviewing my application.

Best,
ABC


Looks good to me!

ETA: I'd call him Dean XYZ, not Mr. XYZ.
