You should make your profile totally private. The vast majority of firms don't even care about references, so I think it's fair to assume that most aren't going to be searching for you on the Internet, but there's no reason to disadvantage yourself at the firms that do look at Facebook just to preserve an unprofessional public profile. Many people I know had only one offer, so this could mean the difference between a rewarding legal career and debtor's prison.
