Deposits aren't binding. Some schools will be unhappy if you cross deposit (deposit at 2 schools at the same time). Some will ask that you withdraw from other schools (I think Penn did this when accepting their scholarship offers). But in general, no deposit is binding. If you get in off a waitlist later you are free to switch.

A deposit for law school is like a deposit for anything else in this world. It is meant to give you a financial stake in seeing the transaction through to conclusion. No one can force you to go to a certain law school just because you said "save me a seat," but they can keep your money when you don't attend.
