Write two letters. One serious, one not. Write the most ridiculous, over-the-top, arrogant, self-exuberant LOR you could possibly think of and send it to your prof. Include phrases such as "This student is destined to revolutionize the American legal system."
Send the joke first. Wait about 2 or 3 hours then send the real one.
For the serious one, don't over-think it. Most prof's probably have a template they use. Just say generic things like "XXXX contributed greatly in class discussion, was always respectful of differing viewpoints, and was a valuable addition to our student body."
