A) No you can do ANY degree and become a lawyer via the conversion course. However, it would be recommended that you do a traditional degree (history, English, politics, sciences, maths, PPE, economics etc. etc.) at a traditional uni of the RG/1994 kind.
B) No, but it helps.
C) I wouldn't imagine they make a big difference (happy to be corrected by someone more in the know), so long as your A levels and degree grades are up to scratch. Most firms filter out by AAB/ABB and a 2:1.
D) Law is a conservative profession so some lawyers won't hold sociology and Media in particularly high regard (to say the least), but I don't think they should stop you getting in most places so long as the grades are decent and you have the aforementioned traditional degree from a traditional uni. The only firm I've seen mentioning A level subjects is Watson Burton ( http://www.watsonburton.com/page/car...applicants.cfm ) though that's not to say there won't be others.
