To the extent that your company matches all or a percentage of your contributions, you will want to investigate your company's vesting timetable. My company's matching contributions vest 20% per year starting at the beginning of the year (Jan. 1) following the date of hire. Your vesting timetable may make a difference on what you decide.

However, especially given that you will not be making any 401k contributions for the 3 years during which you will be in law school, I agree that it is usually smart to save for retirement as much as you can as early as you can.
