When applying for a job, does a law degree equal a master's or PhD? As far as importance by the employer?

Outside of practicing law, a law degree has no significant value. A master's in accounting, economics, finance might be more useful than a bachelor's. PhD's are good in higher academia. Not much demand in the business world. Maybe some in IT.

That probably depends on what job you're applying for. If you're applying for a job as a social worker, a law degree is not as important as a master's in social work. A law degree, in fact, might be totally irrelevant.

No, you obtain a Masters after a BA which takes 4 years in total. A PhD is another 3 years of research.
It will depend which subjects the latter covers. A law degree is useless if the Masters and PhD is in a different area of research.
