1.) It is going to hurt me?
2.) If so, should I drop the LOR altogether or just get two additional academic recommendations?
should be fine. its not like adcomms look up their qualifications and rate them on academic output, continued tenure, etc.

The letter is a 3rd party observation of your skills, talents, achievements, character (or lack of these things) and potential for law school. What the recommender does with his or her life upon writing the letter is of no consequence to those things.
