GPA addenda are for the rare cases in which something outside your control affects your GPA. In this case, you chose to focus on extracurriculars and not academics. Law schools will have your resume and will see what you were involved in and that you were employed part-time. This addendum isn't telling them anything they don't know, and it certainly won't make up for your GPA. I'd say it's better off not written.
